[quote="Pitter"]Actually Sury your gull is most likely California Gull. I'm thinking the first two are winter adult and the last an immature.
I do indeed get some colorful birds and of course Colombia has more species than any other country in the world. Lucky me!
And speaking of colorful this is the bird that birdwatchers come to the Cali area to see. It's endemic so can't be seen anywhere else in the world. It's called a Multicolored Tanager and indeed has seven different colors. I let word get out that it visits my yard and people from around the world contacted me wanting to come and see it. It's hard to photograph with flash because of iridescent feathers but being in cloud forest it's pretty much my only choice.
I think it stands to reason that the bird is a California Gull, given the location central coast of California.
Lucky you, alright and a fascinating story about Tanager. Can we expect an invitation to visit your backyard too?
