Now that it's been posted, I feel the urge to name it properly...

This a young Western Gull? (Taken in Morro Bay CA, November). I, like many, have issues with gulls....

I'd agree with Western, but I'm normally wrong when it comes to gulls.

I may live in San Diego County, but my home and heart will always be in Missouri.

I think I have lots of them...at home...on a computer that isn't work related :P

Will see if I can upload a second one tonight.

I think I'm okay with that being a Western. Gosh, Christmas needs to hurry up so I can start to read that gull guide.

That, and a guide to sparrows needs to go on my wish list :P

Thanks for the help!
