Friday's Foto

Glaucous Gulls are not typically found around Brooklyn. This first year bird, though, has been seen fairly frequently this Winter around Coney Island. Breeding in the Arctic regions of the northern hemisphere, it is the immature birds that are sometimes found well South of their normal, high Arctic range. They are omnivorous, eating mostly animals including other seabirds, but will also scavenge and pirate food from other birds.
