Lifer! Seen through binoculars and scope from ~200 yards. Upperwing pattern very unique. Darker gray mantle and black outer primaries with white triangle on trailing edge of wing. Only possibilities are Sabine's Gull and 1st-year Red-legged Kittiwake. As awesome as getting the Red-legged Kittiwake would be, it was clearly a Sabine's as the black leading edge of the wing went all the way to the wrist; whereas, a Red-legged Kittiwake would not have black on the leading edge all the way to the wrist.
