California Gull, Mono Lake

Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Mono Lake is home to the second largest gull rookery for California Gulls in North America. Here the gulls are safe from land based predators. By early May they have scratched out a spot for the nest and lay black specked eggs. They feast on Mono Lake's brine shrimp and alkali flies and stay through Fall, when they head back across the Sierra to the California coast.
