Kumlien's Iceland Gulls in St.John's, Newfoundland : 1st cycle

This is not meant to be a definitive article discussing the identification of Kumliens Gull, nor I will go into much detail about it's separation from either glancoides or thayeri at this time. However, where appropriate (mainly in the captions) I will make some notes on the birds pictured. At this time, this is serve primarily as a collection of photos of Kumliens Gulls, to show typical and some not so typical individuals. If you have questions or comments about birds included, please feel free to reply in the comments section. All photos included were taken in St.John's, Newfoundland.

Over time I will add more comments in the form of captions and will include the date the photo was taken. All photos were taken between early January and mid February. All birds are presumed to be Kumliens, though some individuals do show some characters intermediate with either glaucoides  or Thayeri. However, most of these are fairly typical individuals. I will also be adding flight shots over time as well and this page will continue to evolve over time.
