Gull ID - a Virtual Workshop by Joachim Bertrands

Free and back by popular demand! Gulls - often termed ‘seagulls’ by the wider public - are notoriously difficult to tell apart. These identification challenges make them one of the least favorite groups of birds, and often end up in the ignored category, even with experienced birders. The Pacific Northwest takes that to the next level, as hybrid gulls are almost as common as pure ones in this region, and species concepts fade. Joachim has always had a strong interest in the less explored fields of birds and birding and has made it one of his favorite pastimes to scan flocks of gulls while trying to find unity in the variety. He has managed to get a good feel for the taxa that occur on the Westcoast and is eager to share his knowledge with you, as well as what’s still to be explored.
