*Making Sense of Big Gulls in Californiawith Alvaro JaramilloTuesday,
November 30, 2021 7:00 PM on YouTube*

The large gulls are a nightmare, or maybe they are a blessing. The adults
are striking and beautiful yet are complex. This is a group that is recent,
where speciation is happening as we speak, where it is still messy and
unclear. Rather than solve all problems in gull identification, this talk
will tackle tidbits, disparate parts of the puzzle. We will chat about the
evolutionary history of northern large gulls and simplify how gulls are
aged (it’s not that hard), and Alvaro will give us some pointers on how to
look at gulls and make sense of them. Alvaro will also throw in some
observations on some of the Asian rarities that tantalize us in California
and introduce those species and what to look for.

Join Alvaro for a night(mare) about the challenges of Big Gulls of

This program will be recorded and made available there for later - or
repeat - viewing on our YouTube channel.
