1
Iceland Gull

Very pale individual for a Thayer's, but the bill size would be too large for an Iceland. Seems like the same individual seen in Salt Lake county on the previous day. When shared photos of that individual on gull ID sight, opinions were split.

Herring x Glaucous-winged Gull (hybrid)

Large, pale gull with primaries that were too pale for Herring. Base of bill starting to become pale would eliminate THGU.
