I think this is a Glaucous with that bicolored bill and general white shape. It's also very large compared to the gull next to it, and pretty bulky.


Edit: I have been sniped.

Looks like probably a second cycle bird? Or am I imagining the pale iris?

Yes, I agree with 2nd cy. A small percentage of 2nd cy. GLGUs have dark irides, and this bird appears to have pale ones, further supporting your claim.

The pale tip to the bill also indicates a 2nd cy.
