Bonaparte's Gull

    Newer Older

    Photographed on Antelope Island, Utah.

    Juvenile in front, non-breeding adult in rear, feed on brine shrimp in the Great Salt Lake. Bonaparte's Gulls are unusual among North American gulls because they typically build their nests in trees rather than on the ground.

      wow! What a lucky capture, a very rare plumage to see, I think, the young one. I've certainly never seen it. Very Sabine's-like.
