Another Franklin’s Gull!

When I returned to the point at mid day, I found this Franklin’s Gull. It appears this is a different bird due to an alternate stage of molt on the head. The white extending from in front of and above the eye does not match any of the birds from this morning. The black hood is more extensive than any of the others as well.

This Franklin's Gull has a much more extensive black hood than the others I saw earlier in the day.
