Laughing Gull at Bayfront Park (J Street) Chula Vista
At 1145 Saturday October 12, 2019 there was a Laughing Gull on the small sand spit at the southwest corner of Bayfront Park (J Street) Chula Vista. Gray mantle, black wingtips, black legs and black bill, and dark "ear-muffs" on a gull that was clearly smaller than nearby California Gulls. Longish bill with slight droop at tip. 1st Winter bird based on broad black band on white tail. The gull was seen for a few minutes before it flew off to the south; possibly landing on the south side of the mudflat area.
