Lake Gulls

Having grown up in California not far from the Pacific Ocean I was very familiar with Seagulls. Along the North Shore of Minnesota we have Lake Gulls, not their scientific name of course but it works. The sight of these birds is quite familiar. What is unfamiliar, at least for me, is seeing them sitting on a snow/ice covered rock. My family and friends in California will relate to this.



  1. Do you know what the proper term is for the "lake gulls"? I've been trying to find out. I heard a long time ago they were call something like "false gulls"

  2. I'll see if I can find out, but it will take a while.

  3. Craig, Just got back from the North Shore. These are Heron Gulls.
