Focus on Gulls

Please note date change from 12/19 to 12/17.

This walk is for 18 and up. Gulls are certainly challenging but with a few tricks and a little patience we’ll learn to differentiate between the species we regularly see here in winter. We’ll discuss identification, plumages, and life-histories as we attempt to demystify these beautiful birds. We’ll start the day at Drake's Beach, which is often a good spot to find these birds, and depending on who we find here, we may drive to a couple of different locations to search for the various gulls that frequent these areas. Remember to bring binoculars if you have them.

Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

No registration is required.

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at (415) 893-9520.
