Herring Gull on Les Iles-de-la-Madelaine

Recommended Posts

Not sure enough about gulls to call this one.  Looks like maybe a Herring gull, but I don't see a red mark on the bill.  Maybe just the photo?

Black-legged Kittiwake! All yellow bill, and wings that look they're dipped in ink.

Thanks akiley.  I knew it didn't look quite right for a Herring gull, but I couldn't figure out what it was.  I saw immature Black-legged Kittiwakes at the Cape a couple years ago, but they were immature and easy to spot due to the M pattern.  Didn't know what to look for in an adult.
