Goleta Beach Gulls


Steven Gaulin
 

I did a quick tour of Goleta Beach around 2:15 PM today. I was surprised to see no sandpipers of any type but there were hundreds of gulls, mostly on the bay, both east and west of the pier. Numbers and distance discouraged identification of those birds but there were at least 100 on the sand East of the easternmost parking lot. Those birds were Westerns, Californias and good numbers of both adult and first-winter Heermann's, with a single first-winter Glaucous-winged standing out.
