The Herring Gull is the most common of the Gulls. I had taken photos of the immature Herring Gull one year earlier, and had not been able to find a mature one until I was taking some pictures at the Milwaukee County Zoo, and noticed a large Gull eying the food of a polar bear. I still did not know which Gull it was until I reviewed the picture and was pleasantly surprised that is a Herring Gull. The immature Herring Gulls were found at the Little Muskego Lake in Muskego, Wisconsin. They appeared to be on their second winter from the coloring.
