Oldest California Gull Found in Silicon Valley

August 26, 2013

When rescue workers checked the gull’s leg band, they found ….. here’s the article. The article may be only partially correct, as seen on the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center’s page on the Longevity of North American Birds. There are several California Gulls of similar age as the Silicon Valley bird. This could take precious hours of your day to peruse, so I’ll just say that the longest recorded gull I found was a Western Gull at 33 years, 11 months.

Feel free to search the list for the longest-lived bird of all. Just kidding
