Here's one that I found on Saturday in Manitowoc:
|First summer Little Gull (1st cycle). Manitowoc, Wisconsin; 24 May 2014.|
A fiesty bird, this one was relatively big and did not take being pushed around by the surrounding Bonaparte's. It was very skilled at fishing, and gulped down 3-4 shad in the few hours that I observed it.
