Possible Franklins Gull at Owls Head treatment station

Bobbi Manian took a photo of a diminutive shaded head gull at the Owls Head Transfer or Sanitation Treatment center this afternoon that might be a Franklin's Gull. To get the best views of gull hanging above the soupy pools, one must stand on the slope of Owls Head Park southwest slope facing the station. Owls Head Park n the station is along the Belt Parkway at around Bay Ridge Avenue in Brooklyn.

The Veterans Pier is another vantage point that is the ending of Bay Ridge Avenue

UPDATE 530: Higher resolution photos have determined the gull to be LAUGHING GULL. But one of these days......
