Help with gulls

Recommended Posts

I saw these birds yesterday at the Raritan Bay, on the Jersey Shore in central New Jersey. I have such a hard time with gulls.. I know there are ring-bills in here, but any help would be appreciated. I have a lot of questions, but I'll try to ask a few at a time, and maybe I will get better at identifying them myself...

The bird on the left in first pic is a ringer, I think....

It's bigger than the brown gull, which cannot be a Ringer, because it's brown. A brown gull in winter on the East Coast is virtually always a Herring. Additionally, the bill pattern on the brown bird is classic first-cycle Herring.
