Observation details

Found by JLD. This adult is apparently continuing from a couple weeks(?) ago. A large dark mantled gull on McGee Creek actively chasing California gulls. In comparison to the California gulls nearby, it was larger, darker backed, thicker billed, and far more aggressive. It didn't fly far, but when it flew the primaries were in molt, perhaps missing the entire P7 on both sides.
