    Default Slaty-backed Gull on Iceland

    Photos of this bird can be seen here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/25753251@N03/

    Very dark mantle and raspberry-pink legs. A great find and interesting to compare with the UK bird - http://www.surfbirds.com/forum/showt...ked-Gull-Essex

    I DNA'ed its poop, and found that it is actually a Pied Flycatcher. Would you like to post your new bins to me, or should I collect them in person?

    It's absolutely, definitely, and categorically not a Slender-billed Gull.

    Since I've fulfilled your statement, you'd better send me those Swarovskis . . .
