Herring Gull (adult with very limited black in the primaries) - Portage Lakefront Park, Porter County, Indiana - January, 2013

This was another Thayer's-like adult Herring Gull with less black in the primaries than typical American Herring Gulls. The yellow iris and heavy bill were clues that this was indeed a Herring Gull. We actually found two birds that looked like this on this day (the other was at Michigan City Harbor).

These photos were taken with a Canon Rebel XSi Digital Camera with a 100-400mm zoom lens.
