Subject: [VA-bird] Glaucous gull, Prince William Co. Landfill
I saw what appeared to be an adult glaucous gull circling over the Prince William County Landfill late this morning.  The bird had white primaries, was larger than nearby herring gulls, and the upper wings and back appeared a little grayer than the white head and tail.  An adult was seen earlier sitting on the ball field.  An unfortunate development is that the landfill has started using a loud noisemaker to apparently keep gulls away from the dumping area.  This is going to make it more hit-or-miss for finding rare gulls.
