Thayer’s Gull in Niagara Falls, 02 Dec 2018

While birding the table rock at the horseshoe falls and watching the gulls below a gull flying up over and above the gorge caught my eye. The bright white leading edge of the wing was flashing in my peripheral vision. I looked up and it turns out it was a beautiful Iceland “Thayer’s” Gull (Larus glaucoides thayeri). These are the photos I managed.

These are just the beginning of the photos I took at the 2018 OFO Gull Weekend in Niagara Falls this year. Hopefully I will get around to editing and posting more photos soon.
