Subject: [Maine-birds] Re: Slaty-backed Gull - YES

Further investigation of photos revealed that what we called a Slaty-backed
Gull in the field appears to actually be a Lesser Black-backed Gull. Our
bird lacked the black in the tail and had a thinner white trailing edge
than the Slaty-backed shows.

Many apologies! A major lapse in judgement.
