It is certainly not what we call a Herring gull in the UK. The adult is very grey/white and the young are very mottled brown.

Nice pic though!

I thought a herring was a fish? (kiddding)

Nice one.

After doing some research on gulls, I found that this could be Heermann's gull - Larus heermanni. I found that this gull also lives in USA, if more precise in California (or maybee In West coast in general). Don't know in which part of USA you ImKayd1 live.

Here are some photos, based on which I decided to call it Heermann's gull:

But of course you can do some googling by it's scientific name.

Cheers!

The composition and the detail is superb. The color is unusual to me but it is only because I have never seen one like that.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice shot Kay, interesting color and composition. We have lots of gulls around here butI'venever seen anything besides gray, white and a lil black.
