Species: Swallow-Tailed Gull | Location: Genovesa Island, Galapagos Islands

Swallow-tailed gulls are endemic to the Galapagos Islands, and have colonies spread out over the entire archipelago.  Nat Hab's Ultimate Galapagos Explorer trip offered us the opportunity to view thousands of birds such as these gulls.
