Gulls Gone Wild in Pt. Richmond, CA

Gull Gathering

Gulls after a day of feasting on herring roe.

Click on Gulls Gone Wild to view a 6.5 minute music video documenting the beauty, exuberance, and chaos of this natural history experience along the Bay Trail in Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline in Point Richmond, CA. The herring first came to Point Richmond on (or shortly before) February 4, 2011 to spawn after commercial roe fishing boats reached their limits allowing successive runs throughout the month. Harbor seals and sea lions came to eat the herring; then the gulls and diving ducks came to feast on the carpets of eggs that covered the kelp, eelgrass, pier pilings, and rocks along the shore. This documentary covers about 10 days of the event.
