This morning at dawn I found a beautiful 1st winter Glaucous Gull on the beach at Ponce Inlet, just north of the North Jetty. The bird was almost snow white with a minor amount of pale brown flecking on the underside. The bill was a classic two-tone flesh with a dark tip. The eyes were dark, the legs were pink. The bird was slightly larger than the adjacent Herring Gulls.
The Great Cormorant was also still sitting on the tower at the end of the North Jetty.
