Black-tailed Gull

This Black-tailed Gull will appear in the gull section of our new Stokes Field Guide To The Birds Of North America, coming this fall. I photographed it on Nov. 22, 2005 at Lake Champlain. This is an East Asian species that only very rarely has shown up in the U.S. One of the things I am very excited about is that over 500 of my best photos will be in our new guide, and I will get to share them with you.

I am curious where on Lake Champlain you had the fun of finding the black-tailed gull. I grew up on the Lake in Clinton County, NY, who would have thought there would be a traveler from that far.

This image is absolutely gorgeous! What a perfect exposure - wow. I am looking forward to seeing the field guide. You must be so proud to have 500 of your own personal photos included - how impressive!
