FIRST REPORT OF NESTING RING-BILLED GULLS IN NEVADA ALAN A. GUBANICH, Department of Biology, University of Nevada, Reno, Nevada HUGH JUDD, Jessie, Sparks, Nevada The Ring-billed Gull (Larus delawarensis) is a common winter resident throughout Nevada but is not known to breed in the state (Conover , Ryser ). Habitat. Nests on islands with sparse or woody vegetation in large lakes and occasionally on mainland peninsulas on near-shore oceanic islands. Occurs inland near landfills, golf courses, farm fields and on coast in estuaries, beaches, mudflats.

In courtship, both birds stretch upright and alternately face toward and away from each other; male feeds female. Nest site is on ground near water in area with sparse plant growth.

It nests around lakes in the interior of the west, and winters commonly along the Pacific Coast, including offshore waters.

In much of the inland western United States and Canada, there are two common breeding white-headed gull species, the California Gull and the Ring-billed Gull.

Once they have bred, they are likely to return to the same breeding spot each year, often nesting within a few meters of the last year's nest site. Many individuals return to the same wintering sites each winter too.

Gulls have differing winter and summer (breeding) plumages. The head, neck and chest and abdomen are white. Outside the breeding season, the adults have grey streaks on their white heads. The back, shoulders and upper wings of ring-billed gulls are a light, silvery grey.

The breeding biology of the Ring-billed Gull is well known and the history of its populations during the last century well documented. Based on morphology and displays, this gull is closely related to other typical white-headed gulls; it has hybridized with Mew (Larus canus), California, Franklin's (Leucophaeus pipixcan) and Laughing gulls (Leucophaeus atricilla) (Moynihan, M.

The North American Waterbird Conservation Plan estimates a continental breeding population of million birds, and rates the species a 5 out of 20 on the.

The ring-billed gulls' breeding habitat is near lakes, rivers, or the coast in Canada and the northern United States. They nest colonially on the ground, often on islands.

This lack of data on such a con-spicuous bird, the only gull breeding along the California coast, is perhaps not too surprising since Western Gulls nest primarily. Adult California Gulls that were marked on the breeding colony at Freezeout Lake were later reobserved on the Pacific coast from Vancouver, Canada to Baja California, Mexico (Rothweiler ).

Introduction. Populations of several species of gulls have increased throughout North America in recent years (Drury and Kadlec, ; Conover, ; Belant and Dolbeer, ).In the Great Lakes region, both breeding and winter populations of herring gulls (Larus argentatus) and ring-billed gulls (rensis) have increased example, the nesting population of ring-billed Cited by: In breeding plumage, Ring-billed Gull has a clean white head and underparts, a red orbital ring and a little red at the gape (the corner of the mouth; photos below).The bill becomes a clearer yellow, and the eye may brighten and become more yellow.

The primaries are black or near-black in all plumages but adult birds normally have small white spots at the tips, visible in flight.

There is, however, appreciable habitat separa- tion between these species, with Franklin’s Gull being most commonly found in agricultural and marsh or slough areas.

Likewise in Alberta, California gulls tend to nest on elevated and boulder-strewn areas, while ring­ billed gulls occupy more level terrain. Also, California gulls. The great black-backed gull (Larus marinus), mistakenly called greater black-backed gull by some, is the largest member of the gull family.

It breeds on the European and North American coasts and islands of the North Atlantic and is fairly sedentary, though some move farther south or inland to large lakes or reservoirs. The adult great black-backed gull has a white head, neck and underparts Class: Aves.
