Mew Gull 1 Seen on beach with other gulls by where the fresh water
runs into the ocean. I observed it for at least 15 -20 minutes until a
woman with her dog scared it away. Slightly smaller gull than
ring-billed, dark eyes, smaller more slender beak with no ring. This
bird is banded on right foot but none of my photos were able to pick
up the number.
