Re: Tricolored Heron Continues in Oceanside

Sorry for the late post, I saw the continuing Tricolored Heron at the SLR River mouth lagoon yesterday September 23 from 5:30-6 pm. It was foraging along the marsh edge just on the east side of the bridge. There were also two Green Herons in the lagoon as well. Then went over to the beach and saw a weird looking gull in the middle of the last 2 jetties. It was roosting in with the main flock of gulls. Half of its feathers were tan, in some sort of molt I’m guessing ? It was about Ring-billed size. Reminded me of the tan variety of Rock Doves. I failed to get any photos of it, so if anyone sees it, I’m curious as to what species it is ….
