Hoffman, W.,J.A.Wiens, and J.M.Scott. 1978.Hybridization
between gulls in the Pacific Northwest. Auk 95:441-458.

Easily available archives of the Auk do not appear to be
available, however.

Half-a-bee, philosophically must ipso-facto half not-be. 
But half the bee, has got to bee Vis-a-vis its entity...
	d'you see? 
But can a bee be said to be or not to be an entire bee 
When half the bee is not a bee due to some ancient injury?
