Subject: [cobirds] Re: Larimer County gull report
Not to cause trouble, I know the adult Slaty-backed Gull from Larimer
County in 2000 that I saw, had bubble gum pink colored legs, does this bird
have them. In the photos, the bird shows pink legs, though not sure the
bright pink I remember with other Slaty-backeds I have seen, mostly from
Alaska, and the one in Colorado. Other things on this bird look pretty
good for Slaty-backed, though hybrids of other species can be look like
Slaty-backed like.

Good gulling, it is always interesting this time of year!
