    Comments: Larger gull than surrounding Ring-billeds, showing very light gray mantle and gray rather than black primary tips, tucked back to the tail as it was sitting on the ground. Raised its head twice showing the dainty yellow bill with red dot, lacking the bulbous quality of Herring Gull. Beautiful adult bird, found in late December at this location by Linda Chittum, and observed about 20 minutes earlier by Andrew Baldelli & Kathy Louthan. Maybe the same individual that wintered at this exact spot last year as well? Photographed at rest, will post.
