Glaucous-winged Gull?

Recommended Posts

Probably not. It's pretty dark brown overall and the bill is doesn't appear uniformly black/dark. More likely a Western or Western x Glaucous-winged Gull hybrid, but this photo doesn't really give us enough information to ID it to species.

Pure western is not that common up there. Presumably Olympic

I didn't even look at the location. In review, I agree with Hasan. It's almost assuredly a GWGU x WEGU. However, if I were birding and this was my only look, I'd call it Larus sp.
