Subject: [Tweeters] Carkeek Park Swallow-tailed Gull

First, thanks to Ryan Merrill for discovering the gull & for getting the word out so quickly. Yesterday I was one of the many who delighted in seeing this bird because of his efforts. I also enjoyed the company of my birding friends.

Link to 2 brief slow motion videos showing the pattern of the upper wing and the shape of the tail. Note how the outer primaries in photo #2 flash black & white depending on the position of the individual feathers.

Also, 3 stills; one showing the under wing.

It was a good day.
