Western Gull (Larus occidentalis) - 03Sep2015 and 05Sep2015

Fun fact about Western Gulls:

  • Like most gulls, the Western Gull is an opportunistic feeder, capturing its own live prey, scavenging refuse, or stealing food from seals and other gulls. It is known to steal milk from lactating female seals while they lie on their backs sleeping on the beach.

These were photographed in Moss Landing and Monterey Bay, CA.
