The largest gull of South-American continent, easily recognized from its plummage and the red spot on the inferior mandible of its yellow beak.
Kelp gull (Larus dominicanus, Goéland dominicain). Brazil, 2007.
Note: These kelp gull photos are the beginning of a series of images I brought back from Brazil in last January. You will see here one post every two days with a new animal (mostly birds), with one or more photos. Keep visiting us.
