This Lesser Black-backed Gull (Larus fuscus graellsii) was video-ed at Padre Island National Seashore, Texas on January 20, 2000 by John and Barbara Ribble. Note that the longest visible primary is only P7, thus P8, P9 and P10 are presumeably still-growing; sadly there are no images of the spread wing. This is extremely late for graellsii to be in this stage of molt - in fact I'd like to hear from anyone who has evidence/experience of a graellsii or intermedius(from any part of their ranges) with a molt matching or even later than this individual:
