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.
