Observation details

MEGA, I Found this bird on the dump this morning and it stood out to me how gray and brown the primaries and wings were. The bill was mostly black, very thick and the gull was very large, I messaged a few people and they agreed that I had a likely GWGU. Got some decent photos of it here. Later birders from the west coast confirmed that this is a GWGU and all possible hybrids have been ruled out. State bird for me!
