      I've posted a few pics at http://www.flickr.com/photos/7202050@N04/sets/72157629151625155/with/6810019443/

      Video will come later.

      As reported by Dan Singer, there is currently a herring run going on, with eggs covering all rocks from the Golden Gate Bridge north tower to Sausalito. I spent most of the day there today. I didn't see the Glaucous Gull reported by others.

      Here are my numbers (eBird just went down for maintenance!):
      Western 3000
      Gl-W 2500
      Mew 350
      Thayer's 200
      Calif 100
      Herring 50
      Heermann's 8
      Ring-billed 5
      Iceland glaucoides 1 (about a 6 on my thayers/kumliens/glaucoides scale at http://www.tertial.us/gulls/tkg.htm)
      Thayer's-Kumlien's type 2 (both about a 21 on my scale)(pic at flickr site)
      Gl-W x Western 100
      Gl-W x Herring 5 (pic at flickr site)

      good birding,
