Herring Gull?

Recommended Posts

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?

That's a fresh juvenile Ring-billed. Small and thin-billed, and small structure overall. Nice looking bird!
