Lesser Black-backed Gull?

Recommended Posts

Lesser Black-backed Gulls are reported pretty much daily hanging out with other gulls in the parking lot at Jones Beach State Park, NY.  I saw this bird today but what seems odd is that the various bird guides say that LBBGs have yellow eyes with red orbital rings. This one has a pale eye and no significant ring, but I don't see what else it could be.
