Gray-hooded Gull in the Pearl Islands, a report from Venicio Wilson

During our navigation from Pedro González too San Miguel, I spoted a Gray-hooded Gull among a feeding frenzy. At first I though it was one of one of the many Franklin's Gulls that had invaded the Gulf of Panama due too El Niño. After examining the bird carefully I noticed the peculiar wing tip pattern. The gull seemed to be in good health and actively participated of the feeding frenzy.
We also got a Green-and-rufous Kingfisher at Río Mosquito, Isla del Rey. The kingfisher was fishing in the mangroves about 1km inland.
