Taken off the coast of Buenos Aires. There were lots of Kelp Gulls around but I thought I'd post this in the remote chance it might be a young Orlog's Gull ???

Agree with Kelp Gull - the bill is definitive as Lou mentioned. As well, Olrog's juveniles generally are darker on the head and I believe should show a cleaner white rump, though not 100% positive about that.
