    Details: First-winter (photo); First seen at the extreme southern end of the beach where it looked like a large white gull with a bicolored pink and black bill. Twice moved up coast to just short of the southern end of the boardwalk. First-winter; appeared mostly white in back lit conditions, but showed some faint marbled brownish color in the wing coverts and on the back. Large pink bill with dark tip, very pale primaries, dark eye. Blood on face and bill from feeding on Elephant Seal afterbirth. Though it relocated on the beach twice, I never saw the bird in flight. Most of time it was resting on the ground.
