Does this image help???  Also, how about the one just in front of it, it looks a little different than the other ring-billed.  Dark Eye...


The one in front of it is another Ring-billed Gull, it has a dark eye because it's a first winter bird. With this photo I understand better why it's a California Gull- it looks like the "all dark bill" was just a trick of the angle and lighting. The head shape also looks a bit different from Herring Gull.
