Laughing Gull by Simon Aredondo

Location: Monkey Cup, 1728 Amsterdam, New York, NY 10031

Painted: June 12, 2016

Climate Threat: Despite its name and proclivity to humans (and their trash cans), Laughing Gulls breed in isolation along the Atlantic and Gulf Coast salt marshes. Smaller flocks of the species have begun to move farther inland, as they're forecasted to see a 58 percent lose of their summer range along the coast by 2080
