Question Gull makin' me crazy

Place: Port Takashima, Otaru, Hokkaido, Japan.

Weather: Overcast, cold.

Hi Everyone!

I got a Gull that is not an Adult.
It is flying among Black-tailed Gulls.
The placement of the white and the brown coloring on the tail,
and the color of the bill....
makes me think I have to look for a hybrid...
Glaucous-winged + ?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Jeff
