adult Kumlien's Iceland Gull, Turner's Falls - 12/24

Kumlien's Iceland Gull - non-breeding adult, Turner's Falls, Franklin County. December 24th.

A quick run up to Turner's Falls this afternoon produced this really fine adult Kumlien's Iceland Gull resting on the ice close to Unity Park, the first adult that I've seen here this winter. It's good to know that within this relatively small gull roost new birds are still turning up.
Also present, about 300 gulls in total including a first-cycle Kumlien's Iceland and an adult/sub-adult Lesser Black-backed Gull.
