day of the small gull
Both species can be separated by their color of tbeir bills: Red for the Blackheaded,black for the Bonapartes.You can see Gus' photo and video of the Bonys on his facebook page
Also of interest is two merganser species. The duo of HOODED was joined by RED BREASTED, the latter quite uncommon maybe seen twice yearly here..
So, the coast comes to Prospect Lake. A good day for Gus.
Update : Gus Keri's checklist with photos
