Glaucous-winged Gull

Larus glaucescens Naumann, JF, 1840

The glaucous-winged gull is a large, white-headed gull. The genus name is from Latin Larus which appears to have referred to a gull or other large seabird. The specific glaucescens is New Latin for "glaucous" from the Ancient Greek, glaukos, denoting the grey color of its wings. Source: Wikipedia
