    Default possible California Gull, Madrid

    Another potential first for WP after Slaty-backed Gull.

    Photos in boths links below (although only second seems to work for me):

    In the second link, iris looks slightly pale to me. Not sure if of any significance, but lesser/median covs seem to be retained 1st-year feathers.

    Opinions?
