Gull - Oregon - November

Hi All,

I took this photo last week on the Oregon coast. I'm not very good at gulls. Any tips here would be appreciated. This is the only photo I have unfortunately.

Thanks.

'Olympic' Gull (hybrid Glaucous-winged x Western)?


Looks like a near-adult (likely 4th winter, possibly 3rd).

That it's sort of half-way between a Glaucous-winged Gull and a Western Gull!
