It was still there on the North End when I got there at 5:45pm. Definitely Glaucous. I got some bad pics..

Thanks to those who responded so rapidly, consensus being Glaucous based on size. I forgot to mention that it was around the same size as nearby Herrings, maybe slightly larger.

Thank you!

Today (Friday) between 1:30 and 3 pm an apparent immature Glaucous or maybe Iceland Gull was hanging out at the north end of Wrightsville Beach (Mason Inlet) with other gulls and terns, providing great looks. I would appreciate help confirming the species-photos are in the ebird checklist linked below. The bird had entirely white plumage and a two-toned bill that looked more like 1cy Glaucous than Iceland, but I am admittedly not familiar with either.

Good luck if you are in the area, hope it sticks around!

Thanks!
