Gray-hooded Gull

Adult, alternate plumage, NYC in August. Second USA (FL, 1998) and third North American record (also Barbados, 2009). This is the furthest north a Gray-hooded Gull has been recorded. It appears to have just started to molt into basic plumage. First reported 7/24 and fairly regular on the beach at Coney Island.
