Nature Walk: Franklin's Gulls
“Franklin's Gulls are prairie birds that breed in dense nesting colonies in prairie marshes in the northern Great Plains. This migratory group consisted of several thousand birds, which had collected one evening on a golf course. Ring-billed gulls, which lack the black head markings were scattered among them. They are long distant migrants wintering on the coastal areas from central America down along the coast of South America.” – Carl Kurtz
