Subject: [obol] Thayer's Gull. Downtown Portland
17 gulls visible at Tom McCall Park, 9 on lawn, 8 in middle of the river.
1 adult Western, showing a few grunge feathers on the neck, so not a
perfect "0" on the Olympic Index, but it has light eyes
1 second calendar California sleeping
1 adult THAYER'S just starting to show a few tips of it's dark autumn hood,
but beak is still bright yellow, almost orange
6 adult Glaucous-winged, in heavy wing molt, primaries worn and bleached
Gulls on the river are a hard call, too far for 8x binocular. At least half
could be juvie Cals.lpn
Pretty sure l've never seen a Thayer's in September.
