Audubon Birding Day: Gulls of the North Coast with John Rakestraw *FULL*

The Oregon Coast hosts a great diversity of gulls in winter. On this trip, we will seek out the various species, studying the characteristics that make each one unique. We could find 8-12 species of gulls depending on the weather conditions. We will also enjoy waterfowl, grebes, seabirds, and perhaps some lingering shorebirds. We will bird sites from Cannon Beach to Fort Stevens.

You will drive yourself. Bring food and water. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
