Below: A very interesting gull photographed at the Worcester Co. landfill, found by me, Mikey Lutmerding, and Dan Small on 1/28/2012. Click to view any image in full-size without any adjustments besides cropping. Shows some characters suggestive of first-cycle Slaty-backed Gull or perhaps Glaucous-winged x Herring Gull hybrid. A notorious ID challenge that might be impossible to settle conclusively at this time. Opinions to the contrary are very welcome!

Below: A presumed Lesser Black-backed Gull x Herring Gull hybrid - Worcester County landfill, Maryland (1/28/2012). The harsh exposure in these images makes the mantle appear a bit darker than it did in the field. It appeared intermediate between American Herring and Lesser Black-backed Gull.
