Ring-billed Gulls

A large flock of Ring-billed Gulls (Larus delawarensis) flies above the St. Joseph River near downtown Three Rivers. The gulls follow major waterways, like the St. Joseph, up from Lake Michigan, and are often seen on area lakes as well. When I first moved here I found that very strange, but many sea-going birds are found along the St. Joseph River.

I'm always surprised when I see what feels like an "ocean" bird in the Midwest.
