পালাসি গাঙচিল (অপ্রাপ্ত বয়ষ্ক) /Great Black-headed Gull/ Pallas's Gull (juv) by Shoummo (সৌম্য), on Flickr
I noticed it in Lebur Char (patuakhali, kuakata)...There were few of them 4/5...all were identical, big large bird...amazed by their way of Landing and take off...they were roaming around the shore line and nearby mangrove forest...
I asked local fishermen but none can told me local name...Later Rahul vai told it might be Pallas's Gull (juvenile)...Pallas's Gull also known as Greater Black Hooded Gull...they have trademark black head... But Juvenile may not posses this identification mark...I am confused coz all of them were same size and same look....none had black head....
