Gulls and more gulls
But gulls were good. The hot spots were E. 55th Street Marina and the hot waters at the E. 72nd street power plant. We saw seven species of gulls, including at least four Iceland Gulls and at least 7 Glaucous Gulls. Additionally, we probably had at least 300 Great Black-backed Gulls for the day. Herring and Ring-billed Gulls numbered in the thousands, and we had a couple Lesser Black-backed gulls and a handful of Bonaparte's Gulls as well.
