Frosty Ring-billed Juvenile

I photographed this frosty cinnamon Ring-billed juvenile on 09 Sept 2012 on the Chicago lakefront:

The cinnamon wash on the head, neck and upperwing coverts is not that uncommon, but the frosty aspect of this bird makes for an interesting combination. California Gull juveniles also occassionaly have this cinnamon aspect to them.
