I'm trying to learn to ID gulls These gulls were all seen in the lagoon at Avila Beach in San Luis Obispo County.  Thanks.

First, I think this is a Ring-billed Gull.

In the second pic is a Western Gull and a second, smaller gull I couldn't ID.

Third, I'm guessing is an immature Mew gull. I'm basing my guess on the relative size of the bird (compared to Godwits) and the slender bill. 

Lastly, the gull in the center of the frame looking left appeared distinctly smaller than the rest of the gulls, Westerns mostly, so Mew Gull again, maybe.
