  1. Another gull question... this is an interesting one. Seen in Monterey CA today, hanging out with a group of Western Gulls. Western and Herring can be ruled out because of contrasting pale inner web on outer primaries (visible in 2nd photo). Thayer's can be ruled out by the stout bill, bulky shape (especially head), darker coloration and less distinct patterning overall. This doesn't strike me as a Glaucous-winged x Western, as they tend to be browner on the head and underparts, with a darker brown "ear muff". So I'm thinking Glaucous-winged x Herring Gull hybrid or Slaty-backed Gull on this one. Hoping for Slaty-backed (would be a lifer). Thoughts?
  2. Potential retroactive life birds here. I was going through some old vacation photos, before I started keeping my life list and before I tried to get good pics of the birds. Are all these Western Gulls? 1. - 5. Near Sea World, by the charter fishing and whale watching docks. 6. In La Jolla 7. - 8. San Diego Bay, bait barges Bonus: Any idea what these are? A couple miles out during whale watching. Surfbirds?
  3. 9/29/18, Traverse City, Michigan. Pretty distant gulls. A bunch of Ring-billed, a few Herring, (a couple swans), but what are the 2 in the circle? Could it be Great Black-backed and Glaucous?
  4. 4/27/18 in Orlando, FL. Should be pretty straightforward, but with gulls, I'm always wondering if I'm missing something. 1. Laughing Gull? 2. Ring-billed Gull?
