  1. I saw three gulls flying quite a distance away yesterday, not real high. I understand they might not be identifiable, but thank you for any guesses.
  2. Hello, Currently there is a tropical storm offshore of central Florida, so I watched from the shore hoping to see birds blown in. One bird was far out and I could not identify it. Please look at the attached image. The body shape reminds me of a tern, but the long black wingtips are what's confusing me. Any ideas of what it could be?
  3. Just had an interesting gull flyover on my walk this morning, and I need some help nailing down an ID. Odds are it's CA, but I'd like some confirmation from some gull gurus. I'm located in southern OR in Grants Pass, well inland from the coast and far from any large bodies of water. It was the briefest of flyovers, as it was just trying through and was probably driven over by the poor weather. We do not regularly have any gulls (except for a few RBGU in late March/April), so whatever this is it is an excellent bird for the county. It's a faded, younger bird, with plumage and head-shape gen
  4. Old photos again, think this is a ring billed but unsure because it looks like the ring may be the whole tip of the bill. Also seems to me like the tail is a little long as you can see in picture 2 September, peaks island ME
  5. greetings. first post. possible nonbreeding adult ring-billed gull: lake Erie, western new york state; late june; late afternoon / early evening (/prevening). observed in water; flying short distances; walking and laying on dry land (grass); on rocky shore; walking on pavement. body mostly white, some (grey / grey-brown?) mottling on head and neck area; wings mostly grey; tail end mostly dark/black; black/dark eyes; grey(?) feet. information regarding identification of species / subspecies, 'gender', approximate age, all much appreciated.
  6. Here are some Pacific shorebirds along California. The pictures were taken in October. Thanks! 1. Black Oystercatcher? 2. Which gull is this? And is it possible to ID the small bird in bottom right corner? 3. Which gull is this? 4. Which gull is this? 5. Which gull is this?
  7. Hello Forum! Thank you for all of your recent help in identifying my first west coast birds. YOU GUYS ROCK!!! I've got a few more that I can't quite place and would appreciate some help. Thanks! 1. The Merlin Bird App keeps pegging this one as a non-breeding or juvenile Black-Bellied Plover. It was larger than nearby sanderlings, smaller than willetts. Can anyone confirm?

  8. 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
  9. Seen at Lake Merritt Oakland CA today. Torn between Thayer's and Glaucous-winged x Herring Gull, thought the neck and head seemed perhaps a bit bulky for Thayer's, and the texture of the brown smudging looks like Glaucous-winged to me, but I'm not sure. Definitely too slender and long-winged for Glaucous-winged x Western, and too small of bill.
  10. Lake Merritt, Oakland CA today. Probably just Western x Glaucous-winged Gull. However I was wondering about Slaty-backed Gull, which I have no experience with. Probably nothing exciting, I just struggle with young gulls sometimes. Unfortunately didn't see it move too much, didn't see any other poses.
  11. December 6 in SF Bay area. I was thinking Herring x Glaucous-winged Gull hybrid, but would welcome any opinions.
  12. Are these Thayer's? November in Washington state. Thanks for the help! 1) 2)
  13. Hi, are those Bonaparte Gulls, non breeding ones? Seen 2 weeks ago in Ontario, north of Toronto. thx
  14. Hi, is this a ring-billed Gull? Immature? seen 2 weeks ago north of Toronto, ON. thx
  15. This gull was seen today near Albuquerque on the Rio Grande with 2 Franklin's Gulls. Seemed slightly larger than accompanying Franklin's
  16. Took some pictures of gulls today 11/3 in Seattle and trying to figure out a what these gulls are. Any help appreciated
  17. 8/24/2018, St. Joseph, Southwest Michigan There were about 30 gulls - Ring-billed and Herring mix - on this section of the beach in the morning. This one was a little bit separate from the main group and had unique plumage. Still Herring?
