Mew gull?

Recommended Posts

Mew gull?  Photo today on a giant lake in southern Nevada.  There are often ring-billed and California gulls here.  I looked thru them today to see if anything unusual had snuck in. Thanks!

Why not 2nd cycle California? Bird doesn't look that petite to me, and that bill pattern is awful contrasting.

Agreed. Doesn't strike me as a Mew Gull.

Sorry, California makes much more sense... now I officially give up gull ID.

I'll see if I can find a nice vireo for you.

When I see a gull I almost always ID it as Gull sp.
