This presumed 1st-Basic smithsonianus Herring Gull was photographed at Corpus Christi Landfill on Feb 17, 1999 by Martin Reid. Late winter/early spring birds can often look like this, but mid-February is a bit early for such a pale-looking individual - especially the tail; so, is there anything visible that clinches/rules out thayeri? (in the field it looked on the small side for HEGU, but not tiny):
