Winter Gull Workshop 2017 – Trip report

Megan Boucher & Laura King

It was a cold day at Quidi Vidi Lake in St. John’s with low numbers of gulls however we had a great turnout of 35 people! We were able to see the usual winter gulls including Iceland, Great Black-backed, Herring, Glaucous, and the Ring-billed Gull. We also sighted the Lesser Black-backed Gull at Virginia River outflow area of Quidi Vidi.

The Pied-billed Grebe, Red-winged Blackbird, female Ring-necked Duck, and the American Coot were nice additions to the day.

 

Thanks for all who participated today.  Here is the Ebird list of the 25 different species of birds sighted today during the workshop:
