Steppe vs Caspian ID pls (1 Viewer)


Active member
I took these photos in Dubai and put them up on the ID section of the forum. The response was that Steppe Gull is far more likely in Dubai but Caspian Gull looks really similar in first-winter plumage.

Any opinions on Steppe vs Caspian re these photos are welcome!
