|It really isn't too difficult to pick these guys out. Note the dark eye, yellow legs and slightly darker upperparts.|
Another highlight was this rather dark Kumlien's Iceland Gull (stage 4-5) that looked intermediate at times (depending on the lighting):

|Compare the slaty-gray wingtips of the Kumlien's to the true black of the Ring-billed's wingtip.|
It was a relatively small gull with a nice helmet-head - a very social gull too, coming in just as frequently as the Ring-billeds!
