Roving Reporter | "Gulls (and Boys)" | Photo and Caption by Jeanette Larson

"Our gulls are gathering and picking out nesting places. Year-round residents, laughing gulls have a long breeding season and are generally the first we see gathering at Rockport Beach. Colonial nesters, they gather in groups that can reach into the thousands, creating shallow nests in dry areas. Even thought they are starting to pair up and figure out where they will nest, they don't lay eggs until early April. Be careful as you drive through Rockport Beach as some are more focused on finding a mate than on cars passing through."

Jeanette Larson is a retired librarian and author. She and her husband, retired architect and artist Jim Larson, moved to Rockport several years ago for the birds, the beach, and the coastal community.
