LAUGHING GULL MOLTING FROM BREEDING TO NONBREEDING PLUMAGE, BUNCHE BEACH, FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, 2/13/18

   In the first two photos, the heads of the Laughing Gulls have turned almost all black, but there is still some white.  The bills and legs have not started to turn red.  In the third photo, the bills and legs of the two Laughing Gulls in front have started to turn red.  The head of the gull on the right still has quite a bit of white, while the head of the gull on the left has turned almost all black.
