Subject: [CT Birds] Hartford area gulls
There were a few interesting gulls in the Hartford area this afternoon.

Riverside Park - adult Lesser Black-backed Gull
Murphy Rd waste center - adult hybrid Glaucous x Herring Gull, 2 first
cycle Iceland Gulls, first cycle Lesser Black-backed Gull

Note: The adult Glaucous x Herring hybrid closely resembles an adult
Iceland Gull. Note clear pale lemon yellow iris without any dark flecking,
yellow-orange orbital ring, overall size of a medium-large Herring Gull,
and thin crown and nape streaking.
