Isla Rasa!

April 10, 2006

They arrive by the hundreds, by the thousands, and even by the tens of thousands! Ninety-five plus percent of the world's population of Heermann's Gulls and also of North Americas Elegant Terns descend upon this tiny island in mid April each year. The sight, sound, and smell are all overwhelming as these seabirds take over every possible nesting site!
