Ring-billed or Herring Gull?

Recommended Posts

I struggle with Gull IDs. I want to say this is a Ring-billed gull, but without a good luck at the legs, I can't tell.

Ring-billed is correct. Note the pale mantle, dark wingtips, and black band around the small yellow bill. A Herring Gull would have a noticeably larger bill.
