Gull of some kind, Eastern Ontario, Canada

Is there enough of this bird showing in the photo to ID what kind of gull it is?

I suspect it's a juvenile Ring-billed Gull. Do you have any other pictures?

Sorry, no more photos. I suspect you're right though as ring-billed gulls are common around here, but all juvenile gulls look alike to me.
