- Comments: "Adult breeding bird. Most likely continuing bird first obs at veteran's pier by Julian Hough on 3/18. I Was sitting having my lunch on Columbia street pier looking at waterfowl. A distant Gull with black head flew into my optics and began flying toward me. I assumed laughing or Bonapartes then bonapartes as it got closer but when it flew overhead I saw it had dark legs and primaries under wing. Bird flew north toward IKEA. I looked along piers and found bird on Dwight st pier mixed in with ring bills. I could see dark hood that started high on head as bird waddled around concrete pier. Iphone through binocular photo attached."
