Gull Study Workshop - Field Trip

  • San Gabriel Coastal Basin Spreading Ponds (map)

Leader: Larry Allen. Put your new knowledge to use in the field, perhaps even identifying immature California & Ring-billed gulls as they fly overhead! Meet in the field at 9:00 a.m. and ogle the gulls until we’re all gull identification experts! Location will be confirmed during the Friday evening lecture. We will likely go to the San Gabriel Coastal Basin Spreading Ponds in Pico Rivera, but the destination and directions will be disseminated after the Friday lecture.

Some pretty amazing gulls have shown up here over the years, including Glaucous, Slatybacked, Lesser Black-backed, “Iceland & Thayer’s”, and Kelp (yes, Kelp!) gulls. Let’s hope for one or two of these.

Maximum of 20 participants. Must sign up for the Friday January 25th lecture in order to attend this field trip. Doheny Beach parking fee. If goodly numbers of gulls are present around the Los Angeles Basin, we will assemble there instead. Bring a lunch.
