I saw that David has reported an Iceland Gull in Grand Isle yesterday (the
I was heading over the causeway to Grand Isle/South Hero and stopped, as I
always do, at the pull off to scan the lake. As I was standing there, a *
very* bright white gull flew over. I only saw the underside but felt it
must be a Glaucous or Iceland. I watched it for a while and it was fairly
low but there was no way to get a scale so I was reluctant to report it.
After seeing the Bird Alert, I went back to my bird books, looked at some
sizes and believe that it was an Iceland Gull as well but there was
absolutely no black at all on the wings.
(Usually birding in Westford)
