I feel like a jerk for showing up here with a gull! But I figure people can ignore it if they want to!
I was able to photograph this 1st ba. Herring Gull at a local gull hotspot here in Ontario, Canada (Hamilton - near the west end of Lake Ontario), and has our local gull watchers wondering if this is possibly some extreme variation from our North American smiths, or if it comes from somewhere else! (or any other possibilities you can think of!)
Any comments are welcome! photos here:
