Wow, I had no idea! So it sounds like they just showed up on their own for some reason. I was wondering if it had anything to do with the Great Salt Lake, but I doubt they would find food in there.

Actually, I'm pretty sure they eat all the brine shrimp in the lake (which humans don't consume).

Cinnabon....However did you get the gulls to line up in a near perfect circle around the perimeter of that tree......?

The Beach Boys undoubtedly would wish they all could be California Gulls.....But I'll wager there's a Herring Gull, Ring Billed Gull, Common Gull, or Great Black Backed Gull in the mix there somewhere....

It was the funniest thing - they were just like that, I guess so they could all get a piece of the shade. It was quite hot that day.
