Jackie, you are right - it was 1984, I believe.

  If memory serves me, Bill Rudden was the first or among the first to find and with Phoebe and others to identify THE lower 48 record Slaty-backed Gull near what became Riverlands. It was only after that record that birders on the west coast began to spot one on rare occasions.

Frank Holmes and Bill Rudden were on the Saddle Dam when they found the 
American Pippit in the rocks along the waterline. We saw the Slaty-backed 
Gull and a Long-tailed Duck from an observation platform beside the 
spillway. A group from Chicago also reported seeing the Glaucous-Winged Gull 
from the dam.
Conveniently, a Lesser Black-backed Gull was near the Slaty-backed so 
everyone could see the differences between the two birds.
