same first year bird that;s been there since 8/16. Tiny, dark bird with black cap and hind neck. Bold black & white pattern to wings in flight

Franklin's Gull

Ring-billed Gull
1
California Gull

First summer bird seen in direct comparison to adult and immature Ring-billed and Franklin's gulls. One third larger than Ring-billeds with pinkish-gray legs, long, thin bill with dark terminal tip. Mix of medium grayish-brown and white on mantle, with dark wingtips. Head was too rounded and small looking for Herring Gull. It had a dark eye and brownish-gray head.
