A few more Irish shore birds


Recommended Posts

  1. Black-tailed Godwit (Limosa limosa) - The left bird is a breeding adult and the right is a juvenile. There is not a huge difference in adult sex plumage. 
  2. Black-headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) - This bird is a juvenile gull. Note the mottled brownish black which molts to gray by winter.
  3. Domestic Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) - This is not a wild species of duck, but is a domestic duck. I am guessing a domestic Mallard. The bird in the back is a Black-headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus).
