Herring Gull

This picture was taken on Nob Hill late Winter 2009.  The bird appears to be an immature Herring Gull.  However, with a variety of gulls gliding low around tall buildings, there are just a few seconds to take the picture from the time they appear in the sky before they once again disappear behind other tall buildings.  There is no time to study such birds for proper identification.  Thus it is possible the bird is another kind of gull.  Nevertheless, we see one beautiful bird here.
