Yellow-legged Gull.

I can think of few places I know of where you can get so close to Yellow-legged Gulls as Princes Park boating lake. I went back this morning and one of yesterdays birds seems to be settling in to “loaf life” at least for now. Yellow-legs don’t seem to linger here beyond August and I’ve found the species scarce throughout other months. Buy far 80% of my encounters locally are of juveniles in late summer.
