I think it is a Mew Gull, we don't see them here very often. This photo is representative of the kind of photos that are so often not selected by GE, but are none the less very informative about the local area.

Or maybe a Ring-billed Gull. We don't see those very often either.

LOL, Nawitka! At first I thought your title was a joke. Ring-billed gulls are some of the most common seagulls around Massachusetts!

oh-oh! maybe this one was lookin' for Spammy !

He is similar to our Pacific Gull which is quite different to our usual sea gull, but the beaks are similar except for colour.

Common or not, you did a good job of catching him sharply, Nawitka.

Looks like he's didn't like anyone being in his "space", except you of course! ;)

An excellent shot, and quite interesting.
