Inner Harbor, Baltimore

Baltimore's harbor on the Chesapeake Bay was as close as I got to the actual coast. Even so I was able to add one gull species to my list. Here is a Laughing Gull.

Unfortunately I was shooting with a short "tourist" lens so the detail isn't what I would have hoped, but fun nonetheless.

Later I found this mystery gull. I went with Herring, but if anyone knows differently please feel free to email or comment. The very white base portion of the bill seems unique. Perhaps it is some type of hybrid?

I found it very interesting how different the same bird looked when I photographed it from a different angle. Not much birding in Baltimore, but some very tasty crab!
