I haven’t been keeping up on my blog updates. Partly due to the holidays and partly due to a weird sinus/head cold I’ve been fighting for the past few days. Anyway…I ended up rushing over to Echo Lake Park in Downtown after a friend called to tell me they were looking at a 1st year THAYER’S GULL just a few feet from them and with the sun at their back!! I have been trying to track down a Thayer’s Gull to photograph for quite a while… Not having any luck at Ballona (where they are irregularly found), I quickly forgot about my sinus headache and jumped in the car to go photograph. There were also LOTS of Glaucous-winged Gulls all around.
