Keith, in your post, you wrote "Also returning large "WHITE-WINGED" Gull (aka
Mr. Long Beach) now in its 3rd cycle hanging out at its usual place on
the jetty at the west end of the parking lot.

Despite some long discussions about its identity when it turned up, isn't this widely accepted as just an Iceland Gull? 

Is there still some reason that it is continues to be reported as unidentifiable to species even now, as a three year old?
 I think it may be confusing for those less well versed in gulls to see it referred to as a "white-winged" gull.
