Tuesday Afternoon Bird Photo

Juvenile (herring? or ring-billed?*) gull shows plumage transition. As it matures it will become gray and white. On this photo, the gray feathers look like an additional pair of wings!

(*Every time I think I can tell the difference between juvenile ring-billed and herring gulls, I change my mind. So I'm not committing to one or the other this time!)

Here is another photo of the same bird - again, check out the gray feathers on the back.

Fantastic detail on the wings Penny. Yet another for your book.
Thanks, Ray! I am really enjoying my new camera now that I know a little more about how to use it!
