    Are Yellow-footed Gulls Rare In Illinois/Chicago? I just took a picture of a yellow-footed gull along the Chicago river. A little internet research says they’re mostly found in the Salton Sea in California. Was mine a rare sighting? Very rare?

    • Curator says:

      Have your picture checked by a birder in the area. Look at birding.com for a list of Illinois bird clubs. It’s unlikely that it’s a yellow footed gull because they don’t migrate much. There have been many unusual sightings this year near Lake Michigan because of the warm winter, and birds getting lost.

    How Long Does It Take To Swim A Mile? How long does it take to swim a mile? I consider myself an intermediate to advanced swimmer(very good at breast stroke, ok at freestyle 26 second 50M), I might do swim this year but I am asking because I want to swim across the Salton Sea. I am speaking of front crawl/ freestyle.

    • Curator says:

      As you have little experience in swimming, especially racing (or even cruising) a mile, it would likely take you somewhere in the area of 25 to 28 minutes. 26 for a 50m free for an inexperienced swimmer is fast … you are choosing the right sport.

      However, you should get yourself a bunch of pool swimming before you do an open water swim such as the Salton Sea. You should get to where you can swim around 2500 yds/m in an hour and 3000 total before you do the SSea swim. In addition, that water is extremely salty … have you swum in such water before? If you swallow some (and it is likely you will), be ready to do some puking!

    Is Hunters Point, CA A Good Place To Shoot A Zombie Film? So I’ve been recently looking for locations to shoot my film at and after deciding that the Salton Sea is not an option due to my low budget, I wanted to know if Hunter’s Point would be a location I should invest time looking into. I have an understanding that the place is pretty sketch which is why I haven’t decided that its the right place for me, so if you have anything that would be good knowledge about the location or to show me a location that’s in the bay or close to the bay let me know. Thanks! Alex.
