Bird Photos / Great Black-backed GullLast Update: 4/3/2016
This large gull was near the water on Assateague Island, MD, in July 2003. It was very, very loud, and it was surprisingly large- much larger than the other laughing gulls and herring gulls we'd seen in the area around this bird. It was standing there making a lot of noise.
This immature Great Black-backed Gull was on the beach near the Ocean City boardwalk in July 2005.
This Great Black-backed Gull was on a piling near the Lock House museum in Havre de Grace, MD on Feb 26th, 2006. This is on the Susquehanna River.
