Can anybody tell me what percentage of Eastern Pacific Gulls have dark
eyes? Flicking through old photos, I found an individual with dark eyes,
of similar darkness to those of Kelp Gull. This bird was
seen 16th June last year on the Altona Foreshore. Could it have been
a Western Race? or just abberant?

For those who did not understand what I meant about the 'dark
eye', I have posted a more close up photo here.

bird count : 446
