On 20 December I observed an interesting gull as part of a "six gull" day at the Asotin County LandfillI originally ID;d one bird as Glaucous Gull (2nd cycle).Discussion has now shifted to the strong possibility of hybrid, most likely a Glaucous x Herring Gull Photos are posted on flickr at :https://www.flickr.com/photos/birddog/27410930899/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/birddog/27449314719/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/birddog/39225100271/in/dateposted-public/ Field marks that I noticed are:obvious white, (light) overall color with tan barringpale eyebicolor billrounded head shape similar to Iceland (Thayer's) Gullnot evident in photos, the size is similar to a larger California or smaller Herring Gull Feel free to join in the "gull fun" Keith E CarlsonLewiston
