I have observed birds here in the western Mojave Desert for more than 6 decades. For 2yrs, a large flock of CA Seagulls have occupied the quiet old school site (paved parking lot, grass athletic field, vacant buildings, sycamore trees- about 5 acres). The gulls have chased away the resident ravens, just as the ravens did not tolerate the hawks, golden eagles, and turkey vultures. In the past, gulls stayed near the beaches- now the habitat of the "Housewives of Orange County"!
