Figure 1. Distribution of the Franklin's Gull in North America.

Nonbreeders are found scattered widely outside this range during summer and especially postbreeding. Breeding is localized to relatively few colonies (< 50 breeding colony sites documented in any given year), and breeders concentrate within 50 km of colonies. See text for details.
