Hello,

This Gull was spotted in Point Reyes National Seashore in California. I initially thought that it was a Western Gull, but I was caught off guard by the pale eyes of this individual. Could this possibly be a hybrid of sorts or perhaps a Herring Gull? Thanks in advance!

It's a Western Gull I believe, although I'm not 100% sure I could rule out Western x Glaucous-winged (Olympic Gull). The northern Western Gulls generally belong to a subspecies that is lighter on the mantle, which could be the bet explanation here.
