    Details: ***MEGA RARE, 1st Worcester County Record. I discovered this bird at about 930am but due to distance at first I couldn't rule out Laughing Gull. Jessica Johnson came for the bird and it was much closer giving key characteristics and she was very familiar with Franklin's having seen them before and she was able to make the call on the ID.. Seen eating, preening and sleeping in the field. Large black-headed type gull with darker mantle. Laughing is ruled out by the back of the hood not all the way down. And less black in the wings edged by white. And also the black spot at the end of the red bill. This bird also has a pink wash to the breast
