Tomorrow I will try again for the Varied Thrush on Staten Island, this might be the last trip until another good bird comes up out there, that bridge toll is killer!
|If you see a gull that has any orange on it, legs or bill- stop and look, it's not your run of the mill ring-billed (left), herring, or black-back gull.|
Orange bill, orange legs, petite, and those black "ears," means we have a black-headed gull.
|Brief lesser scaup interlude (they were so close, I couldn't resist!).|
|And now. Lots of preening.|
|Yay! Black-headed gull!|
