I stopped by the Cove yesterday to see if I could find the Glaucous Gull reported previously by Jeff Fengler. A rather bulky first-cycle white-winged gull was standing on one of the docks, but it was an Iceland Gull, (kumlieni as expected in CT). A key non-Glaucous feature was the all-dark bill.
Later Maggie Peretto got a good photo of the Glaucous Gull. Key feature was the pink bill with a prominent and sharply define black tip.
