Does anyone know ...?

I have two questions -

Has anyone seen the male hooded merganser x Barrow's goldeneye in Alameda

Is it possible to photograph from a reasonable distance, e.g. 200mm lens,
the western gulls that nest on Alcatraz? I emailed the National Park
Service there but after a week I've given up expecting a reply.

Many thanks,

John Cant
