Grace O'Malley recently photographed these two Western gulls flying in tandem in an oh-so-blue sky.
Western gulls are year round residents of the Mendonoma coast. Yesterday I saw Western gull chicks on a rocky island off the Point Arena-Stornetta Lands. Here's a photo Jan de Vries took of three gull chicks, one hopping in the air, testing its wings, and two on the ground.
Thanks to Grace and Jan for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
