Neat! These are typically found in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. I wonder what they were doing in Labrador? The birdtherock website suggests that they show up nearly annually, but are an unusual sighting in the province.

Lessa, after going back to an observation I made on march 20, 2014 and entered it, I think I am confused. That one was the size of a Black- backed gull, quite similar, except the wings were lighter. I still don't know the identification of it, but birders at the location said it was a Yellow-Legged Gull. the one I entered on August was much smaller and I meant to enter it as, Ringed billed gull. TYhere is a Herring Gull in ther center of the pic. Any suggestion to help me would be appreciated. Sam

The middle one (big one) is a herring, but I am sure the yellow legged is correct. A rare sighting, co rats!
