Ring-billed Gull Larus delawarensis

In Washington, breeds colonially on gravel islands in lakes and rivers on Columbia Plateau, and (since 1976) on dredge-spoil islands on outer coast. One "confirmed" nesting site in four-county BBA area, below Wanapum Dam on Columbia River. No known breeding in King, Kitsap, or Island Counties, although non-breeding individuals may be seen at any season. Two pairs nested just north of our area at Everett on Puget Sound in 1995, in company of Caspian Terns, but that site has since been developed.
