Its bill was rather large, like California Gull's, but all-yellow with only a small black gonydeal mark. My first thought was Mew, but its bill seemed much too large, and the bird was too big overall. I'm thinking possibly aberrant California. Any ideas? Has anyone ever seen a gull like that?
How about the albertensis subspecies of California Gull (Larus californicus
albertensis)?
