A probable "hybrid" gull - Michigan City Harbor, LaPorte County, Indiana - December, 2012

Birds like this have been seen along the Indiana Lakefront for several years, and have been the subject great debate. Some think these birds are Herring X Great Black-backed hybrids, while others feel these birds are Herring X Kelp Gull hybrids.

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