Immature Bald Eagles
Chasing each other (and flushing all the gulls I was about to look at)!
Gulls, gulls, gulls....
A murder of crows
3rd (4th?) cycle Kumlien's Gull
Various Herring Gulls
Adult Kumlien's Gull!
I look for adult Iceland (Kumlien's) gulls every winter and almost never see them. On this day I saw 3 adults, 1 3rd-ish cycle and one 1st cycle, and also one 1st cycle Glaucous Gull. For NJ/PA, that's a damn good day!
Glaucous Gull (1st cycle)
Always thrilled to see these Arctic monsters. This one looks like it's about to eat those Ring-billed Gulls!
ADULT ICELAND GULL!
What a stunner. Nice white wingtips. Though a shade of gray in there, but this is a nice looking adult Kumlien's Iceland Gull. The moment was all-too-fleeting as a Bald Eagle caused all the gulls to flush! Oh well, at least it wasn't some stupid human like it usually is.
