Who says gulls can’t be good-looking? This sharp dresser is a Laughing Gull. I think. I’m pretty sure. After that Least Tern debacle I’ve lost all certainty. Look, I’m a photographer, not a birder. How very Michael Jackson of me.
According to Sibley and other sources these birds are amongst the most populous gulls on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. While I see them every year, I never see them in great numbers so perhaps they don’t have as big a population here as they do in more southerly climes. JK
