September 12, 2019

Location: Indialantic Beach, James H. Nance Park

I am known as a Heermann's Gull
I'm found only on the Pacific shore
Unlike most other gulls, I breed in the south
Then when I'm done, I migrate to the north.

(Despite "only" occurring on the Pacific coast, there have been a few sightings of this bird in Florida, including this one recently.)
