Glaucous Gull on China Beach in San Francisco on 12/20/20

I sent this on 12/20/20 but evidently it didn't post.  While surveying China Beach on 12/20/20 I came upon a Glaucous Gull, presumably the one Peter Pyle reported some time ago.  The gull was chasing off other gulls and followed me around too.  Apparently it has become quite accustomed to being fed by humans.
 
I enjoyed seeing the bird up close.  See photos below.


Happy Holiday Birding!
