Series: Nesting Gulls

After my rounds checking nests on the Granville Street Bridge, I walked over to the Cambie Street Bridge1 to check up on a nest that was there last year. Not only was the nest there again, but there were two chicks and one egg!

In Vancouver the start of summer marks the beginning of nesting season for our resident Glaucous-winged Gulls (Larus glaucescens). While many nest in colonies on rocky islands and beaches, some have taken to nesting on rooftops around the city.

I recently revisited four locations where I spotted nests last year while helping out with a census of gull nests in the city.
