|Larus armenicus adult, 06 December 2010, Maagan Michael, Israel. Picture: Amir Ben Dov.
Courtship ceremony on the wintering grounds. One month this was also seen at the closeby Maayan Zvi fish ponds (see HERE).
First images shows the male in the foreground and female (more black on bill) in the background. Two younger birds, one 1cy and one 2cy bird, came close (curiosity?) and this was tolerated (ignored) by the adults.
