Bonaparte's Gull
1
Laughing Gull

Looked like a second winter bird to Keith, Blake and I. We saw it go back and forth a couple of times and followed it through binoculars and scopes. Dark back, partial hood but not as extensive as FRGU and the wings looked longer, more pointed.

1
Franklin's Gull

First winter bird seen on the water at the traffic circle beach and then photographed in flight. Seen by multiple observers. I must admit, I called it a LAGU at first, as it was distant on the water. Solid black wings but a partial hood and smaller bill than LAGU. Wide black tail band. Blake has a better photo than mine.
