Observation details

Seen feeding with a group of Ring-billed Gulls across the pond from where I was standing. Very distant but was able to rule out Arctic Tern based on black wedge on the outer primaries of the upperwing and the overall structure of the bird, especially the bird's big neck and offset bill, as well as its deep belly.
