Update - this bird was seen
again Feb 23 - click here to see photos
from that date.
This gull was at Elliot Landfill, Corpus Christi, Texas on February
17, 2005; I feel that it has some features of first-winter Atlantic
Yellow-legged Gull Larus michahellis atlantis,
athough the tail/rump is at the dark end of the range. I'd
appreciate feedback/suggestions - thanks:
