The Gull Frolic is a unique winter event at Illinois’ premier gull-watching hotspot: North Point Marina. Bring your binoculars, scope and cold weather gear, and join birders outside of the yacht club to enjoy close study of some of our harder-to-find winter species such as Iceland and Glaucous Gulls! A variety of waterfowl typically make an appearance too (scoters and other diving ducks), along with the occasional raptor, owl, or winter finch. Birders wearing bright orange hats will be available to help answer questions along the “boardwalk”.

The $25 registration fee includes a continental breakfast, lunch (including “Sea Gull” stew,) vegetarian chili and more. The registration fee helps defray facility expenses. Any surplus raised will go to the IOS Grant Program which provides money to local researchers and projects that benefit Illinois birds and birding.
