Observation details

Only one seen during my three weeks in Mekoryuk. Lighting conditions were tough, and I have lightened the photos slightly. All dark bill and grayish body and wingtips point toward GWGU rather than GLGU. The tide was going out and the current was fastest close to shore. Three or four times this bird flew in, landed twenty-five yards offshore from us, and rode the current slowly out into the main channel. The other gulls weren't landing at all.
