Anyway, here's another one to add to the collection:
|California Gull (juvenile). Half Moon Bay, California. 12 September 2014.|
It's not unusual for the database to be missing data on juveniles, particularly because of banders who haven't submitted their logs (it's a lot of data). The other reason one might get a delayed response from the lab is if the band is very old and predates some of the electronic records (rarely a problem).
In any case, back to the juvenile California Gull. It originates from Mono Lake - one of the biggest California Gull colonies in the United States. Notice the bird has retained a mostly black bill in mid-September, and there are no post-juvenile scapulars grown in yet:
|Mostly black bill and juvenile scapulars (slightly late hatch?).|
Also note the cinnamon tones to the breast, neck and loral region.
Off to the next one.
