cachinnans plumages

Larus michahellis 3cy, March 26 2012, Rome, Italy. Picture: Hart Walter.

By early spring, 3CY Yellow-legged Gulls become extremely clean and bright; compared with the cachinnans in plates 70 & 71, note the bright yellow bill / yellow-toned legs and
the strongly notched coverts. The eye is clearly rather pale.
