Juv/1st winter
Vega Gulls Larusvegae -and others?
November 9th 2002 Choshi Chia Japan

Narrow fringed scapulars. Some 'taimyrensis'-like impression.

Possible smithsonianus?

Light-colored vegae?  or some mongolicus?
Typical individuals of both forms are not difficult at all, but the border is not always distinct.
