Observation details

Difficult to distinguish from a Franklin's Gull but this bird appears to have a large, drooping bill indicative of a Laughing Gull, as well as a somewhat dopey (or Sleepy!) slightly inelegant face. Only seen perched. Fiddling with camera when gov. airboat chased it into brief flight, changing it's landing. ID based mostly on Sibley 2 depiction of a nonbreeding adult showing white primary tips---large or small...can't say.
