Yesterday I checked Tiscornia after work and noticed a Laughing type gull on Silver Beach. I drove over (after waiting for a train to pass. Nothing like a stopped train on the tracks between a birder and a good bird). I didn't have my camera with me so these are phone-scoped.
The bird has a full hood, very little white tips to the primary, a nice long bill (and long primary extension) and limited eye arcs. It would have been nice to get flight shots for comparison with last week's bird, but oh well.
Here's last week's bird again.
Here's a first summer Franklin's Gull from mid-May a few years ago
Here's a line of Laughing Gulls from 6 weeks ago in Florida.
This is a Laughing Gull for Tiscornia from a few years ago, it has a ton of black in the wings but based on the FL shot is probably also a sub-adult and has more black in the wings than an adult laughing gull would have.
time to go find some warblers.
