Bismarck Landfill Gulls
This photo taken at the Bismarck Landfill isn't the best, but gives you an idea on quick ID of gulls in large groups. The shades of gray on the mantle or back is your best hint as to gull identity. In the photo, there are 5 species to be seen.
Taken: 2008-04-09 Glaucous gull - whitest and biggest. The very dark Lesser Black-backed Gull on the right. The bird between them is a slightly lighter Herring Gull than Ring-billed Gulls (group in the front). California Gull(lower left) is the slightly darker gray.
