Slaty-backed Gull (Westmoreland Park, 1/31/09)

This 3rd cycle bird (bill color, reduced white tips) had moved several miles from Tom McCall Park in downtown Portland to Westmoreland Park. Amazingly, it was refound in the evening at Tom McCall Park.


A first-cycle Glaucous Gull was also at the same spot at Westmoreland Park.

Obsessed with birding, I started taking a pictures in '01 after a brief personalized intro by the incomparable David LaPuma. In July '09, I acquired a Canon EOS 50D with a 100-400mm IS lens to be able to shoot the fast-moving lbjs that were so difficult before. In Dec '14, I upgraded my body to a Canon 7D Mark II and immediately noticed a big improvement. Nevertheless, I'm first and foremost a birder, then a photographer.
