Re: La Jolla Cove, Sep 30
Stan: What is your reference for males and females wintering in different oceans? The only reference I can find indicates that both males and females winter in the Humboldt current off Peru, with a few individuals wintering in the Atlantic off of Africa. For one mated pair, the male wintered in the Atlantic while the female wintered in the Pacific, but that is for a single pair. You can’t generalize that finding to all Sabine’s Gulls.
