LOL following hard on the heels of the Glaucous Gull, is his mate, the Glaucous-winged Gull.

The first cockatoo gets to this thread... Glossy Black Cockatoo.

Thanks to all, especially Cliff Andrew who supplied most of the information.

Thanks so much to all contributors.

Isn't the lead photo (Granville Island Marina, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Summer 2005) a Glaucous-winged Gull? - note the grey primaries with white only on the extreme tips.

An adult Glauc at this location in summer would also be very unlikely, whereas Glaucous-winged is a local breeder there.

That would do, though it is a first-summer; an adult would be better if one is available (sorry, I don't have any pics of adults myself, only first-winters).

I found a public domain (US FWS) photo here, which could be added if there's nothing already on BirdForum.

There's quite a lot of pictures in the Gallery but the trouble is I don't know what I'm looking for LOL.

The policy is that pictures used in Opus should be taken by a Birdforum member. I'll see if I can find something else! Unless you can help from this link

Thanks! I had looked there but hadn't noticed 'next page' at the end - there are a couple of adults after all. The top one I think is best:
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=233166
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=165305
and also a near-adult (probably 3rd winter)

Thanks so much for finding those. I'll exchange it with Andy's for the current picture.

It's no wonder I don't 'do' gulls.. I'm struggling to see the difference LOL.
