THE GULL FROLIC

FEBRUARY 17, 2018

WINTHROP HARBOR YATCHT CLUB

The Gull Frolic is a unique winter event at Illinois’ premier gull-watching hotspot:  North Point Marina in Winthrop Harbor. Bring your binoculars, scope and cold weather gear, and join birders outside of the yacht club to enjoy close study of some of our harder-to-find winter species such as Iceland (Thayer’s Iceland and Kumlien’s Iceland) and Glaucous Gulls!  A variety of waterfowl typically make an appearance too (scoters and other diving ducks), along with the occasional raptor, owl, or winter finch. Birders wearing bright orange hats will be available to help answer questions along the “boardwalk”.

Pre-registration is required. For full description and registration details, visit:  http://www.illinoisbirds.org/17th-annual-gull-frolic/#more-3011 Don't delay. Attendance is limited to 150 registrants.
