Thayer's Gull

Larus thayeri


Larger gull with a light gray back and white belly. There is a red spot on the lower mandible.


On the docks in Petersburg, Alaska.


I'm pretty sure these are all Thayer's Gulls, there are a few different individuals. Feel free to let me know if you think otherwise.
