Friday's Foto

For coastal Brooklyn birding, Coney Island is the best place to look for unusual gulls in the Winter. This immature Iceland Gull was the second one we spotted there this year. It was feeding on the Western-most jetty among a flock of Herring, Ring-billed and Great Black-backed Gulls. The Eastern subspecies of this gull breeds in Greenland.
