Collection: Nelsons Gulls

Nelson's Gulls are a hybrid species of Glaucous and Herring Gulls. Difficult to find species information on, this is the most reputable source I could locate on this specific hybrid species.

"It was named after Mr E. W. Nelson an Alaskan ornithologist who had collected the first specimen of this distinct taxa. Henshaw compared its similarity to Glaucous Gull as Kumlien's is to Iceland Gull. He also noted its resemblance to Herring Gull. Although initially described as a distinct species currently it is well accepted that Nelson's Gull is a hybrid of Glaucous and Herring Gull."
