A rare bird

Another Galapagos bird is the Lava Gull. They have black head and wings, a dark gray body that is paler gray underneath. Bill and legs are black, too, but the inside of the mouth is scarlet! They have white around their eyes. Immature gulls are usually dark brown.

The entire population of lava gulls is estimated at 400 pairs and they only live on the Galapagos Islands.
