Heermann's Gull heermannii adult, January 09 2016, Half Moon Bay, California USA. Picture: Alvaro Jaramillo.

As some of you will recall 2015 was essentially a year of complete breeding failure for this species, after looking through thousands of them in the fall, this is the first young of 2015 that I have found.
Adults are also now in breeding plumage with gleaming white heads. A second cycle Heermann's is included too for comparison, they have dark hoods which are largely unstreaked.
