Default A rare find - I think...

Gulls are as common as ants at a picnic around here, but I've never seen one like this before. I snapped this handsome fellow in a local park today and immediately knew he was something different. From the information I found on the Net, it appears to be a juvenile Great Black-backed Gull, a species apparently native to Europe and only recently seen in North America. It certainly stands out from the usual Ring-Billed and California Gulls seen in these parts.
