Glaucous-Winged Gull

A surprise today when I was getting shots of Brandt & Harlequin Ducks at the local harbor. I saw a large group of gulls squabbling over a catch and noticed some larger gulls in with the usual Black-Winged Gulls and they were too light to be Slaty-Backed, much to my surprise they turned out to be these beauties.

 

Note the grey (not black) wing tips.
