Seen yesterday at Fort Myers Beach. There were about fifteen large(r) gulls, first or second year. Many seemed a tad (or more) bigger than the adult ring-bills, yet there were zero adult Herring gulls. The only large(r) adult gull was one Lesser Black-backed, who seemed to have no companions.

Thanks for helping and sharing the knowledge!

Image 1 looks to be Ring-billed, Image 2 and 3 seem to be Herring Gull, and Image 4 and 5 seem to be Lesser Black-backed Gull but I'm sure a better gull specialist will clarify for me
