A Territorial Kumlien's
An adult Kumlien's Gull is now back at Hammond Marina in Indiana for at least the 4th consecutive year. I don't typically think of our wintering gulls as holding territories, but this one sure does (click here to read more about this behavior):
It's late apperance is probably best explained by the mild winter we've had thus far. In any event, it's great to have such a reliable (and beautiful) Kumlien's to go see whenever I need a quick Iceland fix.
