Keith Mueller had a 2nd (or maybe 3rd) cycle bird at the landfill earlier in the week 2/4/14 that appears to be an intergrade between a Thayer's and Iceland Gull.  Folks on the West Coast saying they'd call it wouldn't cut it as an Iceland, East Coasters saying it wouldn't cut it as a Thayer's Gull.   A tweener.   I have posted some of his photos in my gulls folder on Facebook, at the end of the folder:

Speaking of gulls, still good numbers in Southbury, but no luck with the Mew Gull in my brief searches today.  There was one Iceland Gull.  Also the Rough-legged Hawk continues on Cassidy Road in Southbury.
