    (I just want to say I don't particularly lend myself to corroboration.)

    Bird ID - Bluffers Park, Toronto, ON

    I've had a better look myself, and it seems that (consistently with what I see in eBird's photos) Tom Baxter meant a darkish, yet not blackish dark iris (sorry for the lay terminology I'm trying to use here).

    After I zoom in on the eye very close, the bird seems to have a pale iris indeed. On the other hand, most of eBird's photos of Iceland Gull have pale (EDIT: or medium dark) irides as well. I'm confused. https://ebird.org/species/y00478/
