Glaucous Gull at Fort Pickens

It was a gorgeous day for a bird survey at Fort Pickens today, though the birds are very skittish with all the road equipment!

There was one unusual gull on the north shore that Bob and Lucy Duncan have confirmed for me -- I never trust my own identification...

It's coloring is so unusual compared to our more prevalent laughing, ring billed and herring gulls. I'm still waiting for the flocks of Bonapartes to arrive!

Is there any ivory billed of sea gulls that every beach comber dreams of seeing? Just curious.
