Cycling in Florida – Daytona Beach Shores – Gulls & More Gulls

When we were at Merritt Island, an avid birder told me that, if we wanted to see gulls, the the place to be at 3PM was the beach at Frank Rendon Park at 2705 S. Atlantic Ave in Daytona Beach Shores.

Monday, January 31st – We found the park and were there at 3PM and the gulls were arriving from every direction. Thousands and thousands of gulls. Quite the spectacle!



There were various species of gills present and with all of the different plumage choices it was somewhat difficult to tell which was which.



Someone said that the estimate was 20,000 to 30,000 gulls in this one location. Far too many for me to try counting them!
