HEERMANN'S GULL Larus heermanni

One of the most beautiful gulls in breeding plumage, this bird is found along much of the Pacific coast of North America & Mexico, although most breed on islands in the Gulf of Mexico. Immatures are brown and gradually become grey over about three years, the red bill and white head developing at the same time.
