This gull is much larger than the very similar European Black-headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus), but at first a European might think this is a gull that has strayed far from it’s home range. It’s very conspicuous against the brown landscape, but this highland is its home, and it’s common in the Andes.

Altitude: 4227 metres.
