Gulls and Falcons - Xmas Day 2011

Brace Cove in Gloucester, MA had a Black-headed Gull (1st winter) and several Iceland Gulls feeding along the shoreline. Here's the Black-headed Gull below.

The United Methodist Church on N. Main St. in Ipswich had a pair of Peregrine Falcons roosting on its steeple mid-morning. A swing by on the way home around 8pm found one of the Falcons spending the night.
