11499Immature Heermann's Gulls
- Aug 8, 2014Alvaro posted a while ago that he was seeing at that time only adult Heermann's Gulls in northern California and requested information on flocks in southern California. There is usually a small flock of this species along Strand and Salt Creek Beaches in Dana Point, Orange County, CA. This morning at Strand Beach, in a flock of about 75 Heermann's Gulls, 7 chocolate brown immatures were counted. I don't think this ratio is unusual, but I've not been recording that information in the past.
