Thayers Gull

Thayer's Gull

Tuncica Co, MS

The smal bill and nicely rounded head of this individual is apparent here.

Notice also the lighter basal part of the bill. This, combined with the paleness of the head and chest, plainness of the upperparts, and darker primaries lead me to think this is a 'retarded' 2nd-cycle bird.

Nikon Coolpix 4500 ,Pentax PF-80ED

other sizes: small medium original
