Herring Gull

Great Black-backed Gull
1
Northern Gannet

Seen twice, huge white bird with large bill soaring at a distance off shore. Contrasting black wing tips. Initial ID was American White Pelican, but after checking a field guide, I'm pretty sure it was actually a Gannet - black pattern on the wing tips was limited to the tip of the wing and spanned front-to-back instead of showing black primaries and white coverts.

40
blackbird sp.

Single flock. Probably Red-winged.
