Location: East Fork Laughing Gull correction

Other observers:

Expert birder Jen Brumfield caught that my pic of an adult was a FRANKLIN’S GULL and not a Laughing.  The 5 juveniles ARE LAUGHING.  They were hanging together, which threw me off.  Thanks to Jen for catching that, I haven’t seen LAGU and FRGU together before, gave me all kinds of mixed signals.

Double Crested Cormorant on a branch sticking out of the main pond. Seemed completely unconcerned about the walkers, bikers, and fishermen. This is not a large body of water either but there are definitely fish in it. We watched it for at least 10 minutes and it didn’t show any signs of going anywhere. Good views as the bird was only about 50 feet from the bank.
