There are laughing gulls at this inlet - just a few this time of year. The bill shape/ color combo and other features don't seem consistent in the photos I've checked out. But this is my first time seeing this particular species
KC, I've seen Black-headed Gulls in four different states and the District of Columbia, and even found one myself. Laughing Gulls have a different wing pattern, lacking the white wedge on the upperwing.
