We often do not get too excited by gulls. This one is a Ross Gull that flew over 9000 miles, from Siberia, and ended up in Pillar Point Harbor, California. This was the second gull of this breed to ever be spotted in California. Unfortunately for the gull, a little while later, two Peregrine Falcons had it for lunch. The wonders of nature!
