Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 25: At Sea, Traveling from Kobe, Japan to Shanghai, China.
There were a lot of fishing boats out in the East China Sea as we proceeded to Shanghai. Along with the fishing boats many Seagulls followed our ship. I think that I was able to identify Black-tailed Gull and Black-legged Kittiwake. I previously miss identified some Black-Tailed Gulls as Slaty-backed Gull. I admit gulls are difficult to identify since they go through several morphs over four years before getting to their adult state. I look at images in several books and internet sources.
Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 0: San Diego, California.
Morning walkabout near the cruise port area of San Diego. A Seagull (unidentified) posed in front of the MV World Odyssey. We would embark on the vessel the next day in Mexico for the Spring 2016 Semester at Sea voyage. I also saw a Brown Pelican and a different Seagull (unidentified) posing on the head of a statue.
