The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Sabine's Gull is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This is a two-year gull that is a common migrant off the west Coast. It breeds along the Arctic coasts, Baffin Island and Greenland.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
