Anacapa Island and the arch
nown as the Galapagos of the U.S., Anacapa Island in the Channel Islands National Park is a rare bird unto itself. With virtually no predators to eat their eggs, the Western Seagulls and endangered Brown Pelicans find this hilltop island an oasis of protection, and the best place to frequent in the spring. During March you can often see the gulls sitting on their nests that sit on the earth or slightly off the ground on top of flowers and plant mounds.
Over 90% of Western seagulls seen on the California coast at piers, beaches and in the air were born (hatched) from eggs at Anacapa Island
