Iceland Gull

Noah Gaines

On count day, 1.5.19, I found an adult Iceland Gull at Alice Keck Park.

This bird does frequent all three parks (Alameda and Kids World are just across the street) so make sure to check around.

This is undoubtably the same individual that has been returning every winter. I first found this bird on 12/15/12 and it was in 3rd winter plumage at that time. So that would make the bird 9 years old now! Please correct me if my math is wrong.
