First winter gull. Links to photo and short video below-- taken with my pushed-to-the-limit phone camera, they leave a lot of detail out, especially the boldness of the white 'eyelids': Two bold white semi-circles (eyelids) around the eye, one above, one below the eye, and almost touching together behind the eye, but not in front. White eyelids look bold against brownish-charcoal-gray smudgy hood that starts behind eye in the ear area and wraps up over the crown of the head. Brownish-charcoal-gray hood darkest at the rear ear areas of the head and lighter towards the forehead. Hind-neck, forehead, breast, and belly very clean white. Mantle and scapulars gray, but lesser, median, and greater wing coverts grayish-brown. Primaries blackish-brown, with very little white in the tips (visible in scope, phone photos not sharp enough to pick it up). Bill entirely black and small. Legs black. Smallish gull, dwarfed by adjacent Herring Gulls that appear twice as big. video: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cvgallagher/8133086143/
