Remove SpeciesLate this afternoon at about 6:00 I saw an Iceland Gull at Delta Park. It was a 2nd winter bird. A white-winged gull. A few inches smaller than the Herring Gulls with which it was associating. Aggressive. Chasing other gulls on the wing. Diving from 10 to 15 feet head frst into the water. I could not see what it was catching. Graceful and buoyant. Dark bill. No black in primaries. Shadowy underwing. White tail. Joined a number of other gulls in harassing a Bald Eagle.
