January 20 - Iceland Gull

I made a brief stop at the Sussex Landfill in Lafayette, NJ today.

It's not the nicest place to spend a Saturday, but it can offer up some nice birds.

I went there to see three target gulls (Iceland, Lesser Black-Backed and Glaucous), but I was only able to find an Iceland Gull.

The bird was seen on the ground, as well as, in flight which provided for very nice looks at this "white-winged" gull that visits from the north each winter.

Also seen here today was a Common Raven.
