Larus michahellis 1

BBB9140 [Larus michahellis]

Larus michahellis has a lifespan of up to 10 years. The bird in the photo is in its first winter. As it grows, the feathers on its back will become mid-grey and the beak will turn vivid yellow. So will the color of its legs, a fact that gives the bird its English name.
Photographed at Sounio on September 28, 2010
