How to identify a Western Gull: Look for a white head with a dark gray back, pink legs, and yellow eyes. Size: 24 - 26 inches.  They are in the park year-round.

Fun Facts: Gulls can desalinate salt water for drinking, but prefer fresh. Did you know that "seagulls" can be found living far inland; that's why "gull" is the proper term.
