Betty LaRue Posted March 14, 2016 Share Posted March 14, 2016 https://www.dropbox.com/s/egdsr8l5ucdoex0/Gull-1153.jpg?dl=0 While trying out my new 100-400 Fuji lens, I was attempting a few birds in flight. Really not paying attention to markings on the gulls. I caught this gull from behind, and normally I would just delete the image as not worthy of uploading. But a look at what's offered on Alamy shows very few images of a Gull's tail feathers this detailed from the top side, so I feel this image may, while not the best quality, be worthy of uploading. If nothing else, to add to the pictures of gull IDs on the Internet. Except I don't know the ID of the gull this tail belongs to! I've been going through every Gull picture I can find. Many of the descriptions don't mention whether the tail tips are black. Most often mentioned is undersides. I've looked hard at immature California gull, but not sure if that's it. Location, Lake Hefner, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA, North America. Any of you have a particular gull to point me toward? I've looked on the Internet and my Sibley's "Guide to Birds".
