glaucous winged gull? Puget Sound, 11/14

Recommended Posts

I know they are almost considered vermin in the Pacific NW, but a glaucous winged gull is a lifer for a guy from the Northeast!  Looking for confirmation

Bottom photo is your Glaucous-winged.  Note the white tipped primaries, and the gray in the primaries matches the mantle gray.

Middle photo is Western x Glaucous-winged Gull hybrid (darker mantle and dark gray, but not not black primaries)... I agree that bottom is pure Glaucous-winged... top one is tougher to tell, but looks Glaucous-winged as well.
