I present the first record for Honduras of Western Gull, Larus occidentalis Audubon, 1839, a species found on the Pacific coast of southern Canada, the United States and northern Mexico. An adult was present for at least two weeks at an estuary in the Gulf of Fonseca in southern Honduras. This observation represents the third record of this species for Central America.
