Gull ID appreciated.

Recommended Posts

Southern Ontario at the weekend.

I am trying to pay more attention to gulls so this one is a little random but hoping it will improve my ID skills.

I cannot decide between 3rd Winter Herring Gull and 2nd Winter Ring-billed (we do have an adult Great B-b hanging around but immature doesn't seem to fit) although I am sure it will be obvious when you point out the clues.

I have been looking at size (it seemed Herring size), the black bill ring, eye color, head and shoulder streaking, dashed not solid black on tail feathers,  and particularly the very bright orange feet and toned down orange legs.

I looked at a lot of images but none seemed to have all of these characteristics.
