Just to reitorate to others on the list that may not be aware or be confused, that the gull that has been at Long Beach - and labelled previously by some as a "hybrid" or Glaucous Gull for the past two years is, on plumage, a straightforward 2nd-cycle Iceland Gull, albeit a large one. It is perhaps misleading, at least in my opinion, to continue to refer to this bird as a hybrid.
