Question Corner: November 2014
From the November, 2014 issue
Q. Often, I think maybe around this time of year, I see a large flock of seagulls, a.k.a. herring gulls, looking for food on the big Pioneer High School lawn southwest of the Main/Stadium corner. You rarely see those birds this far inland, and in their natural habitat of the seacoast there are few large meadows. Why should they come this far, and why should they like that particular spot?
Trash from the various events is a possibility, but there are a lot of other places around town where that would be true.
