starting on gulls

Bonaparte: "A small, ternlike gull, with slender bill, rather narrow, pointed wings, and slim body."
If I see a black head (breeding adult), then it would have been easier.

On recent Orcas trip saw Mew Gulls:
black wing tips, small

The other small one with black wing tips is Ring Billed. I see those nesting near freshwater Lake Washington.

California gulls are bigger. Like Glaucous Wing.
