On Saturday January 25th, 16 RRAS members and friends participated in the Lake Mead Midwinter Birding field trip. Our stops included Hemenway Harbor, Sail Beach, Boulder Beach, and 33 Hole. With the expertise of our guides (Alex Harper, Ben Zyla, and Brandon Miller) we got an excellent introduction on how to identify California Gulls and Ring-Billed Gulls, and tips for working through gull identification generally.
On April 27, 2019, 15 Red Rock Audubon members enjoyed a visit to four birding hotspots at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.

I wanted to recap on our day out ( 13 Sep ) at Lake Mead. Specifically, go over the Gulls we saw and discuss them by species and age class. Jeanne amd Cathy took some fantastic photos that day and allowed me to use them in this email for all of us to enjoy. Thanks ladies!
I am going to break this up into 2 parts because of all the context. I am also going to include Alex in on this in case he wants to add to the content with his Larus wisdom.
