Dolphin Gull

Leucophaeus scoresbii (Traill, 1823)

The Dolphin Gull (Leucophaeus scoresbii), sometimes erroneously called the Red-billed Gull (a somewhat similar but unrelated species from New Zealand), is a gull native to southern Chile and Argentina, and the Falkland Islands. It is a coastal bird inhabiting rocky, muddy and sandy shores and is often found around seabird colonies. They have grayish feathers, and the feathers on their wings are a darker shade. Dolphin Gulls have a varied diet, eating many things ranging from from mussels to carrion. Source: Wikipedia
