A probable "hybrid" gull - Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Indiana - October 16, 2004

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.

Comments on the ID of this gull would be welcomed. Drop me an Email!
