|BHGU. 14 December 2011. Baltimore County, MD.|
|BHGU (same individual above in basic plumage). 26 March 2013. Baltimore County, MD.|
The reoccurence of this individual reinforces the notion that gulls exhibit strong site fidelity.
A BHGU in alternate plumage is a first for me in the United States and so I was very pleased.
|Although the coloration of this bird's legs are a deep red, they appear black in this |
photo as they sit in the shadow of its tail.
