Maggie - would you share the picture of the glacous? Thanks !Claudia longmore Wethersfield -------- Original message --------From: Gregory Hanisek via CTBirds <ctbirds...> Date: 1/11/19 8:58 AM (GMT-05:00) To: CT Birds <ctbirds...> Subject: [CT Birds] white-winged gullS at Wethersfield Cove 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.
