Herring Gull (Larus argentatus) - 17Jan2017

Larophiles (people who love gulls) have a special place in their heart for Herring Gulls.  They are one of the most variable species out there.  They have variation in years/cycles, local variation, winter vs summer plumage and also they have a penchant for hybridization.  Some day I will post a series showing the variation, but for now here is a third winter Herring from Wrightsville Beach, NC.
