Lake Merritt yesterday, apparent Kumlien's Iceland Gull

Sorry, haven't had time to post until now. Yesterday I met up with Bob and Juli Toleno at Lake Merritt, where there were very few gulls and no sign of the target Glaucous. This didn't stop a 2nd-cycle bird that appeared to be a 'KUMLIEN'S' ICELAND GULL from showing up at the gazebo beach, however! This may be the same one that caused so much consternation a few weeks ago, but yesterday, just a few yards away and under neutral lighting, he looked like a perfect average Kumlien's.  Photos: Noah Arthur, Oakland, CA
