RING BILLED SEA GULL & EL NINO RAIN IN SAN DIEGO

I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH RING BILLED SEA GULLS!  The band around their bill, their red-rimmed eyes, but oh! the polka-dotted tail feathers!  When I researched this gull I discovered that in the late 19th century humans hunted them for their feathers.  Fortunately the population has rebounded.  Currently I’m seeing them all over La Jolla & Pacific Beach.  Today it is pouring rain, but yesterday we could see the El Nino rain storm arriving off shore.  The sun peeking through turned the La Jolla sea aqua & the clouds on the horizon were indigo blue!  How can I stand to stay inside with such beauty out my front door!
