But the Mazatlecos are dressed differently; they're not the species mix I'm used to.
Here's a sampler, some I can identify, more that I can't.
|This one's easy; an adult ring-billed gull. White head, yellow legs and bill, with a black ring near the tip.|
|Youngsters? But what species? I think that's a fish fin that the one on the right is carrying.|
|Another easy one. Adult Heerman's gull. Red beak, sooty body, white head, black legs.|
|A Heerman's, two unidentified youngsters, and a yellow-billed, pink-legged big gull. Glaucous? Herring? Both have been sighted in Mazatlan.|
And there was the brown one walking with pelicans in yesterday's post.
|Black legs, greyish bill.|
At least the pelicans are easy to identify.
