The Great White Gull

leucistic gull

Spotted something a little out of the ordinary on the marina breakwall today. Mixed in with the plethora of Glaucous-winged and Western Gulls X was this anomaly – possibly a leucistic ( partial albino) phase gull. Seems a second year bird judging from the markings on its bill. This gull was nearly pure white with light markings on the legs and beak. Not fully albino as its eyes weren’t pink.
