Albino pigeon at SJWS? + gulls
- Went to SJWS after work yesterday and got a good number of species and a few new year birds for me. I also found this albino bird, which I'm guessing is a rock pigeon? Can anybody verify the species on this or is it too difficult to tell? It was in Pond E and this was the only shot I could get before it took off.
Also saw thousands upon thousands of gulls flying overhead toward the ocean. I was there for about an hour and a half, and they were easily flying over for at least an hour. Does anybody know where they are all coming from? I could not ID to species, sorry. I am bad with gulls when they are on the ground, let alone flying over me. :-(
On a semi-related note, isn't there somewhere in Dana Point on the beach or somewhere where you can go to view a bunch of different gull species at once? Would now (not today but just now in general) be a good time to see them?
