Caspian Gull (Larus cachinnans), 1cy, 7.8.2010, Nexø Harbor, Bornholm (#2)

This beautiful Caspian Gull in almost complete juvenile plumage is all classical when it comes to plumage pattern and proportions. As seen in the first video where it preens its tail it has a broad black tail band and a rather unmark white tail base. In the second video the rather unmarked white underwings and central belly is visible. It has relative long legs with longer tibia; the bill is relative long and without pronounced gonys angle. It has a good cachinnans jizz with high push up breast, flat belly slightly dropped behind legs and long elongated slim rear.
