Slaty-backed Gull- Connecticut

Couple of nice photos

This one’s paler than your average bear but (I think after some hot debate) concluded to be a Slaty-backed Gull. If you are into the subject you will already have seen photos of this bird.  Julian Hough sent me these yesterday very nice especially in comparison to GBB’s (Great Black-backed Gulls) on the standing shot. I won’t attempt to pontificate on this one!
