Anyone know what this is? We call him the balding mohawk dude, but I assume he has a different name.

Beak looks different: this one is more pointed, like the beak of a tern. But a tern is black on the top of its head. The head also has another shape than the head of a seagull.
Could be a Royal Tern perhaps..?

edit to add letter which got lost somewhere along the road

The second Royal Tern picture on that site is almost identical to yours, if somewhat less bedraggled.

What does the tag on his leg say?
08/30/2011 06:50:28 PM · #11
Yup!!! That's him!!

Actually, mine wasn't bedraggled -- he was preening. :)

thanks, all! I'll have to check out the ID site. :)

'History is replete with Terning points.'

Spock - in one of the many Star Trek movie - 'Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country' I think.
