Walking along the beach at the North End of Tybee, the first thing that caught my eye was a large gull that seemed way too white. I studied all the features - no black in the tail, large bill, very pale gray mantle and a light colored eye. Could it be a Glaucous Gull? After taking many pictures and consulting my Sibley as well as a couple of other references, I concluded that Yes, this was indeed a Glaucous Gull.
