Observation details

Wow another personally found California Gull soon after my last one in Shakopee! This Gull stood out a little because it was a bird with yellow legs and a red dot on bill. I also noticed that the gape protruded a bit and the mantle was a slightly darker shade than the nearby Ring billed and Herring Gulls. I watched this Gull for quite a while as to make sure I could get some birders so see it as they arrived. I saw the bird stretch it’s leg back and fly around twice to the water for a quick splash and I saw it vocalize. Photos.
