Another gull scavenger. How do they manage to keep looking so clean and tidy?
No interactions present.
...is now Chroicocephalus for this species.
My Flickr photos...
Thanks. How do you manage to keep up with these name changes?
I tink that I've mucked it up again!
Should it be Chroicocephalus ridibundus?
Yes, that is the genus!
I don't worry too much about name changes, personally, as I agree with the view that if we are using iSpot, we should accept the names it uses. Whether you put Larus or Chroicocephalus does not actually change the bird you saw! iSpot will catch up at some point. So many changes to names occur so often, that it is hard to keep up. I'd rather be out there looking for stuff than sitting round worrying about the names...
Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it.
I wish that I had started this 40 years ago.
