Herring Gull

Lemoine Point, Kingston, Ontario

His head is still very light. I expect he will develop much more streaking as it moves into its non-breeding plummage. I'm trying to work on my Gull identification and have made up a little key for identifying adult non-breeding gulls as a start. One of the keys I had in mind for this one was the brown streaking on head and neck.
