Today, 3/15, I found a probable adult Thayer's Gull at the Tomoka Landfill,
near Daytona Beach. The bird was similar to an adult Herring Gull in
appearance, but with a small bill and dark iris. The orbital ring was
raspberry pink. The legs were a deep hot pink. The primary pattern showed
very limited black, with pale tongues meeting the white mirror on P-9. The
underwing pattern showed very limited black, mostly in a trim outer edge of
P10 (and possibly P9) and in small subterminal marks on the outer primaries.
The black of the primaries was also not quite a deep black ( see the
comparison to the black on the nearby Laughing Gull.
