barabensis - red on upper mandible?

Post by lou bertalan » Thu Feb 27, 2014 11:00 pm

hello,

can have barabensis red on upper mandible in 'alternate dress'? could this be a barabensis: https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/ ... 5057_o.jpg ??

another candidate, same place, same day (crete, by michalis dretakis, 25.02.): https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/ ... 7445_o.jpg

both are rel. dark mantled. and a couple of other photographed birds by michalis look very like steppe gulls but i'm aware of its probable scarcity - even vagrant? in the eastern mediterranean.
