|Superior Entry Gull Watches!
Meeting at Superior Entry on Wisconsin Point 10 am to 2 pm.
November 6, 13, 20, 27.
If you have ever wanted a chance to spend time in the field to learn gulls, this event might be for you! Join obsessive gull watcher and Duluth Audubon Society Vice President Clinton Dexter-Nienhaus for this season’s Duluth Audubon Society Superior Entry Gull Watch! This field trip has the intention to view and learn about gull identification in the field, less about listing. Gulls can be a difficult group of birds to identify, and this field experience will work to help attendees better understand the more common gulls in Minnesota, as well as give pointers on how to spot the more uncommon species of gull that make their way to the state every fall and winter.
Potential species on these field trips include Iceland gull (Thayer’s and Kumlein’s), Glaucous Gull, Great Black Backed Gull, and rarer late fall species like Lesser black-backed Gull. We will meet at the Superior entry Breakwall (very end of Wisconsin Point) at 10:00 AM. The gulling could last between 2-4 hours, depending on the gulls. Locations might change based on availability of gulls in the area. Bring cameras, binoculars, and spotting scopes. If possible, bring one loaf of bread or more (for the gulls!). Dress according to the weather. This is a stationary event that will not have any bathroom breaks or lunch stops, so bring snacks and water as needed.
