A "perfect" non-breeding adult bird, according to Daryl Tessen. Location is west of Ashland on Hwy 2/13 to Long Bridge Road (gravel road to the right). The bird is on the sand bar off from this road with Ring-billed and Bonaparte's Gulls. Long Bridge Road is the last road before the first bridge over Fish Creek and east of the junction of Hwy 13 and Hwy 2.
Ice on the legs of the gull.
