Common Name:Gull, California
Scientific Name:Larus californicus
Area:Yaquina Bay, Oregon
Date:July 31, 2013

The top photo shows adult bird. Note red and red spots on the bill and the greenish yellow legs. The middle photo shows a second year bird, which is very similar to a first year Ring-billed Gull, but the green legs I believe ID this as a California Gull. The bottom photo shows a first year bird.
