dunlin

..a Dunlin (in between breeding & intermediate plumage), taken a month ago, that part of the beach is closed now..

Dunlins are sparrow-sized sandpipers with long, black, droopy bills and relatively long, black legs. In breeding plumage, Dunlins are comparatively easy to identify because of the conspicuous black belly patch and rufous cap and mantle. In the nonbreeding season, they are plain gray-brown on their upper parts and white below. A prominent white wing stripe, seen in flight, is present in all plumages.

franklin’s gull

franklin's gull

..now that’s streamlined..

The Franklin’s Gull (Leucophaeus pipixcan) is a small gull. It breeds in central provinces of Canada and adjacent states of the northern USA. It is migratory, wintering in the Caribbean, Peru, Chile, and Argentina.
This species is easy to identify. The summer adult’s body is white and its back and wings are much darker grey than all other gulls of similar size except the larger Laughing Gull. The wings have black tips with an adjacent white band. The bill and legs are red. The black hood of the breeding adult is mostly lost in winter.

..these guys were really loud..

The Laughing Gull, Leucophaeus atricilla, is a medium-sized gull of North and South America. It breeds on the Atlantic coast of North America, the Caribbean, and northern South America. Northernmost populations migrate further south in winter, and this species occurs as a rare vagrant to western Europe. (There was an influx into North-west Europe in late October 2005 when at least 18, possibly as many as 35, individuals occurred on one day in the UK alone.) The Laughing Gull’s English name is derived from its raucous kee-agh call, which sounds like a high-pitched laugh “ha… ha… ha…”. (wiki)
