NO Ivory Gull
- A brief check of the Ivory Gull's favorite locations during its weekend visit yielded no Ivory Gull this morning. Wes Fritz reports that the seal carcass below the Kon Tiki Motel has been removed by the City of Pismo. The Grand Ave. carcass--the site producing all the photos on the web--is still present, in diminished form. Turkey Vultures found it Monday, reducing it notably. One vulture was present this morning, looking as if it doubted the value of digging in.
The coast will be checked for miles in both directions throughout the week, in hopes of the gull's reappearance.
