MA - adult Kumlien's Gull
A smart adult Kumlien's Iceland Gull has graced the gull flock at Barton Cove for the last two evenings, especially noteworthy in a winter that's been especially poor for this species locally. We usually have multiple individuals to watch in late February so this adult was definitely cause for a small celebration. Both adult Nelson's and Lesser Black-backed Gulls continue to be seen in the same gull flock.
