cachinnans plumages

Larus michahellis, April 04 2009, Rosas, Spain. Pictures: Antonio de la Cruz.

The underside of P10 is visible here and shows a triangular wedge (not a square tongue) extending only 1/4 down the exposed feather.The huge bill suggests this is a male. The
gape is bright red, similar in tone to the orbital ring. Note red on the bill and saturated yellow bare parts.
