Help ID a gull

Recommended Posts

Saw this bird at Lake Hodges in Southern California.  Seems to be a gull but nothing I can find in iBird Ultimate matches.  Black beak, red legs.  What is it?

Other photos seem to show yellow legs.

What about a Forster's Tern, an Immature or Non-Breeding Adult have black beaks and only an eye patch (not the full black cap).
