6 Species at Charleston Slough, CA

Glaucous-winged Gull
Originally mis-diagnosed as Glaucous Gull. Bob Power notes: "Got to be a washed out bright Glaucous-wing. The bill just doesn't cut it for Glaucous. Has to be black tip and pink or at least fleshy base. This looks to be a first year very washed out Glaucous-winged Gull."

Trip Notes

I worked on flight shots again, this time with gulls. Had a female blackbird posing for me.
