Last week, I found what I believed to be an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull close to the QEII Power Plant, but did not have any decent photos for verification.
Luckily the gull made another appearance last night when myself and members of the Nature Society found it among the thousands of other gulls which consisted of Ring-billed, Herring , California and 5 Franklin's Gulls, all sat on a sandbar opposite the plant.
Update alert - This Gull could now well be the Slaty-backed , I recently found.
Slaty-backed Gull ? - Unfortunately when I decided to take photos of the bird, it decided it was nap time !
California Gull - These two made us all chuckle as they sat on this little iceberg drifting along with the current of the river :
Ring-billed Gull - One of many :
Great Horned Owl
This Owl sits in a tree close to where his mate is on a nest at Pike Lake.
This shot was taken last week :
