816Arcata red gull
- Feb 1, 2004At Clam Beach just north of Arcata I saw a red gull yesterday. The
gull was brown and looked just like the other gulls it was hanging
out with, except it had large patches of red on it. There was a
patch on the back of its head and along its wings and tail. All the
coloring was symmetrical, so it wasn't blood or paint. Has anyone
seen a gull like this or know why it was colored that way?
Also, at Clam Beach last weekend I saw a burrowing owl near the
mouth of the Little River.
