Favors beaches, rocky and muddy intertidal habitats, and fishing harbors. Adult has dark slaty gray back like Western Gull, but note the rich yellow legs. Immature plumages look much like Western Gull and other large gulls; overall brown in 1st year and with pinkish legs, developing gray back and yellow legs in 2nd year.
