With all of the gulls that I post, one would think that I’m good at gull identification. Well, when I’m in Gloucester, yes! In California, it’s another story. I just know that I see something that isn’t quite “Herring”. So I shoot it.
These are Western Gulls that I shot at Drakes Bay Oyster Company in Inverness, California.
Check out the bill structure and color with the lone red dot. The gray backs and the pink legs. The backs are a little darker than the Herring.
