Sheboygan, Wisconsin Little Gulls

Little Gull

First year Little Gull by Amar Ayyash (click to see the larger version).

Karen Mansfield and I had at least 3 first year Little Gulls along the Sheboygan, Wisconsin lakefront on Saturday, June 1. The Little Gulls were associating with Bonaparte’s Gulls at North Point Park. Sheboygan is perhaps the most reliable place to see Little Gulls in the western Great Lakes region.

In addition to the Little and Bonaparte’s Gulls we also had 20 or so Forster’s Terns, a couple Common Terns, and a first year Franklin’s Gull.
