New Bird Photographed – Herring Gull (Nonbreeding)

Herring Gull

This photo was not taken in Dutchess County.

Along the same beach I photographed the surf scoter, I found plenty of gulls to photograph as well.  Most of the ones I found were ring-billed gulls, but a few happened to be herring gulls too, a bird I haven’t photographed yet either.

The size, pink legs and the red spot under the bill were all things I looked at to properly identify the bird.
