Picture ID: 880
Upload: 22.03.2011
Photo date: 23 October 2008
Location: comana, jud. giurgiu
Photographer © cristian mihai
Gallery: michahellis 1cy
Species: larus michahellis

the lower 2 pics possibly show very dark cachinnans! i inlcuded it in this set of 1cy gulls from comana, 23.10.2008 since thy are possibly YLG and it shows how difficult sometimes the ID is from single pics with just an underwing view, considering variation.

upper pic definitely shows a (male type) michahellis with its almost marinus-like bill, smudge around eye and dark inner primaries.
