Tanager 101 Posted March 9, 2022 Share Posted March 9, 2022 Seen at Whiting Overlook in Michigan Sunday. I first spotted this gull with a dark back. It looked fairly large and I got a quick photo out our car window and went to get a closer look. Must have taken off because I wasn't able to find it again. Pretty sure the nearby gulls are Ring-billed, which is why I go lesser based on size. I do agknowledge the fact that this could just be a darker looking Herring or something. I will say that while birding in the field the dark back stood out from the other gulls at a large distance (probably roughly a football field away), so I don't think it is the lighting. It was quite cloudy that day too and very windy. Photo 3 is a better look at the other gulls after I lost track of the darker one. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
