  1. any comment help, pictures were taken yesterday in an inland lake next to a landfill near Houston thanks in advance 1. got them right? 2. How about these? 3. and this one? 5. this one too? 5. Although I marked the bird on the left as herring 1st winter, it has a clear bi-colored bill which I believe is associated with 2nd winter birds, although the overall appearance for me looks more like a first winter Herring. Do some first winter exhibit bicolored bills? Also, the Lesser Black-backed on the right is bigger than the one in the middle of the picture, which has a much smaller head. My understanding is that the greater black-backed gull dwarfs the lesser which is not the case in here. Are these differences associated with different developmental stages? 6. Another interesting one. I have ID'd the bird on the left as Herring but the primaries and coverts are really pale and I am wondering if this is another species or just a very worn out Herring 7.Lesser Black-backed Gull ?
