General info

This is a rather common gull in winter on northern Hokkaido. These were found trying to find something from the clam shells left on the ground.

The last image is of a Glaucous-winged gull for comparison, note the spots on the head and neck, and the grey primaries. The dark-backed gulls are Slaty-backed gulls.
