After boarding the boat and cruising down the river, we started chumming (throwing bread and popcorn out behind the boat) as soon as we got onto the lake. Chumming is a way of getting thousands of gulls to follow the boat around. Mostly it attracted the common Ring-billed Gulls, but we always hope the large crowd will attract something more rare and exciting.

We had an awesome day out on the lake and could not have asked for better weather. The lake was extremely calm which made spotting birds easy! If you think this trip sounds like fun, be sure to join us for one or both of our next trips on November 24 and December 8. You can register for the trips here.
