Lynn Beach - Little Gull - June 12, 2011

An adult Little Gull has been hanging around Lynn Beach near the Nahant line for the past few weeks with a few dozen Bonaparte's Gulls. A bit smaller than a Bonaparte's with a hood that extends farther down the neck this beautiful gull is a rare but annual visitor to the east coast.

A head shot showing the white feathers this near adult has retained.



The dark underwing also helps to pick it out from the Bonies.
