Tony, here's a 'classic' Kumlien's from the go-to gull site www.tertial.us

Quite the range of primary shading in that chart, eh?

It is a dead ringer for yours although he notes the head streaking is atypical.
Hard to tell on yer, ahem, slightly overexposed shot. ;-)

Met up with Little Z today at Volcan Poas, windy, cloudy and little cold.

Here are a few from today.

Thanks so much for taking the time to come up and spend time Little Z.

Great meeting you.

Yes, great fun meeting another Taco birder. Too bad we hardly saw anything. Not quite the showcase for Costa Rican bird diversity. But as I told Bob, if we'd gone somewhere bidier we never would have had the time to chat and get to know each other. Hopefully we will be able to manage another meeting and I can actually get Bob on some birds. His famous camera never even came out of the backpack up there at Pos.

So Cal Supertaco Birdapalooza update:

Saturday, March 29

South Coast Botanic Gardens
26300 Crenshaw Blvd
Palos Verdes CA, 90274
Gates open at 9:00am, meet at 8:30am in the parking lot (fair amount of birds trolling the parking lot in the am, maybe we can get into the gardens early...)
There is a $9 per adult charge, but the grounds are beautiful and there is an excellent variety of birds with all the different flora and habitat. If anyone has a better suggestion for a good meeting and birding locale, feel free to suggest an alternative. Obviously, we can hit other areas after the gardens. Also, we could do an early 'bird' start at the Trump Golf Course at 7:00am for those interested - really nice coastal terrain, CA Gnatcatchers etc. etc.

Looking forward to seeing those of you who can make it!

Cheers, Dave & Callie
