KELP GULL... Wings Up

Observation details

MEGA RARITY!!!! 1st RECORD for Newfoundland & Labrador, and a 3rd RECORD for CANADA! My first photo was shot at 11:48:59:16am, on the edge of the ice near an outflow of the Virginia River into Quidi Vidi Lake. In my observation, the bird appears to be perfectly healthy!
