The Blood Of The Hybrid Is Just A Recipe

Hybrid? No. This Lesser Black-backed Gull is as pure as uncut Colombian cocaine. This bird was photographed on December 26 basking on the northern shores of the Salton Sea, just south of Salt Creek at the Salton Sea State Recreation Area. I believe this was in Riverside County, but I could be mistaken.

I'm back in San Francisco now, hunkering down to face the new year. I hope the catatonic depression you probably slipped into over the holidays is beginning to fade...and if not, I highly recommend the therapeutic powers of staring at birds for prolonged periods of time. Selah.


  1. Holy crap, you've been productive since I last visited your blog in early December.

    A happy new Year!

  2. Thanks Jochen. It was a rough start but hopefully things will jump back onto track soon. Cheers!
