Franklin Gull San Elijo Rios Ave


Geoff Veith
 

I just had a lone Franklin’s Gull Circle the lagoon just east of the Rio Ave entrance at about noon. It then flew west-south west beyond the south ridge of the lagoon. I took the trail toward the railroad tracks to the west but could not relocate. I was able to rule out Bonaparte’s and Laughing gulls based on wing tips; the bird I saw had distinct black wingtips with white outer edges.
