Glaucous-winged Gull photo gallery

Finding rarities is just one of the great joys of birding.  A few photos are below of a near adult or adult Glaucous-winged Gull which Carlos Grandes and I found at Lake Ogallala on 16 February 2013.  Glaucous-winged  Gulls are a west coast species and, if accepted, this would be a fourth state record.  All photos are by Carlos Grandes.
