OK, a bit red faced with embarrassment. The bird I had was not the California Gull, but Dave Tripp and Fran Zygmont did get the real deal. I'm still trying to figure out if my bird was an imposter or a second bird. The mantle did seem darker, but not really a great day to judge shades of gray. In any case, Dave and Fran photographed the correct bird just after our visit so the correct bird is there too.
