Observation details

*Mega| 1st summer bird seen about 1.5 miles southeast of the boardwalk. It was just hanging out with a few RBGUs and was the last gull to fly off when all the others decided to move slightly north as the tide rose. Very tame and allowed close approach. Partial hood, thick white eye arcs, small dark red bill. When it did a wing stretch, limited black wingtips were noted. Lifer, woohoo!
