Franklin’s Gulls at North Point in Sheboygan Wisconsin on May 31, 2016

I decided to make a run up to North Point in Sheboygan this morning. At least 7 Franklin’s Gulls were the highlight. It was constant birds coming and going there which always makes it exciting as to what might show up there. Franklin’s Gulls, Bonaparte’s Gulls, Ring-billed along with some Common Terns were the main species present. It was very cold when I got there and once the sun finally showed it made things just better. Images were taken on May 31, 2016.
