I observed him for about an hour, and when I left the boat ramp, he was still there. He was mostly spending time around the North East side of the water, across the way from the boat ramp towards the private docks. I snapped a few not-so-great shots of him when he flew closer to the boat ramp just to get a sense of the underwing. You cannot see the fine details of the underwing from the pictures, but you can get a good sense of it. Notice the dark primaries. Please forgive the poor shots as low lighting was an issue.

But we're glad that we were able to relocate the gull. Hopefully he sticks around for the other visitors to see him. Again, we believe low tide is the best time to see the Black-Headed Gull.
