Hi, all!
In our search for the Red Knots (dipped), Joyce Davidson and I had a  
strange gull near the river mouth; it superficially looked like a Lesser  
Black-backed Gull (pale head and body with a dark mantle, which appeared to 
several slaty-colored feathers), but the jizz was more Herring-like in 
addition  to having a more bulky, bicolored bill.  Several pictures are on 
 report; if you want to bypass "the rest of the story" and go straight to 
the  gull, just scroll down to the bottom.  Feedback appreciated!
The first part of the blog covers my lunch walk last Monday with the  
Black-and-white Warbler at Santa Ana...
As always, the "back door" is through the main page (below) and following  
the Big Year 2012 links!  Enjoy,
