The glaucous-winged gull (Larus glaucescens) is named for its bluish-green or grey colour (glaucous). Rarely found far from the ocean, it is a resident from the western coast of Alaska to the coast of Washington. It also breeds on the northwest coast of Alaska, in the summertime. It has pale-greyish wings – with no black or white on the tips – and pink legs. The breeding adult has a red spot on its lower bill.
