Franklin's Gull ~ Paracas, Peru - Feb '17

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

In early February Franklin's Gull was the most numerous gull of the trip, the power cables along the coast road, mainly near towns  from Lima to Paracas held 1000's of birds so tightly packed shoulder to shoulder that no other birds could fit in.
One outflow that I saw from the road that I drove past must of had 10,000+ birds in a single flock ..
Paracas beaches probably had 1,000 birds spread over them ..

I searched hard for an advanced bird with a full hood but I was a bit to early for that ..
