Larus glaucoides potential kumlieni

Post by Marian Cirnat » Sun Feb 16, 2014 9:48 am

Hello everyone,

On 08.02.2014 I have taken some pictures of this 1cy Larus glaucoides which still, at this time, has an entire black bill, so I was wondering if it could be a kumlieni. However, since this is my first ever Iceland gull, I am not very aquainted with the specie, therefore your opinions would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Marian,
a dark bill is not enough reason to start thinking of Kumlien's Gull...
