Appeared to be a 3rd year Thayer's Gull. Smaller than the nearby Herring Gull. I need confirmation on this bird as it is a life bird for me. It is also a rare bird for the Upper Texas Coast

Description from Wikipedia

Gulls or seagulls are seabirds of the family Laridae in the sub-order Lari. They are most closely related to the terns (family Sternidae) and only distantly related to auks, skimmers, and more distantly to the waders.
