"Kumlien's" Gull, Larus glaucoides kumlieni

Second Calendar Year, February 2004 

Frederick County Landfill, Maryland, USA



The head pattern on this bird was quite striking, particularly dark above and in front of the eye, with a double bar effect on the sides of the head.  It was present at the landfill on the same day as this bird, which had darker primaries but a paler, though similar, head pattern.
