Observations

  1. Number observed: 29
  2. Number observed: 4
  3. Number observed: 3

    Details: Observed as a flight of three birds that circled high overhead, approached the pond as if they were landing, rose up again and circled close to us before they headed off. All three birds displayed shorter, straighter necks in flight (in comparison to Mute Swans, which show longer and slightly humped necks). Birds were also smaller and more compact overall than Mute Swans. The bills of all three birds were black overall and the lead swan displayed a yellow mark near the base of the bill.

  13. Number observed: 18
  14. Number observed: 1

    Details: Spotted near the beach on a day with strong winds. Smaller sized gull. Wings on the upper-side near the body are gray, fading to paler gray toward the outer ends of the wings, but ending with triangular black mark on the wing tips. The same triangular black mark appears on the white underside of the wings. The tail appeared white on the upper and lower sides. The legs are black, face white and the bill yellow. I am eliminating other gulls with similar appearance because of color of legs (yellow or orange for Bonaparte's Gull, Black-headed Gull, Mew Gull, Ring-billed Gull).
