Lesser Black-backed Gull-2nd cycle

Manhattan, KS

A second-cycle Lesser Black-backed Gull flying over at the the Tuttle Creek Reservoir tubes. This individual flew up to the tubes then headed over the dam. Dark mantle, darker primaries and secondary coverts than nearby Herring Gulls, dark post-ocular feathering, and black bill point to a second-cycle plumage for this individual.

Nikon D90
1/1600s f/5.6 at 300.0mm iso200 full exif
