  1. I took that picture yesterday in Galveston, TX. I initially thought it was a Herring but that head looks way too white to me and I don't see enough contrast between the mantle and the underparts to call it a lesser black-backed (bill color does not seems quite right either). Always a difficult group for me and I would love to hear more opinions. thanks in advance
