Gull watching is one of the most popular and challenging aspects of birding. Gulls come in a variety of plumages and are often easy to observe closely, making the challenge of finding rarities exciting.
The Niagara River hosts the largest collection of wintering inland gulls in North America! The Niagara River Parkway has numerous great lookouts of the Niagara River for observing gulls.
