    @wev @Kevin H
    Thanks, I just wanted some confirmation. I have only seen 2 of these going after the suet, and never together. One chases the other off.
    My images haven't been great.
    Thanks/Like Kevin H Thanks/liked this post

    Funky beak and white patch on neck. I thought it had a kind of Muscovy look to the beak area from your image. So, I started there and then found a list of ducks in the area.

    Was out the other day working on BIF and found a bunch of seagulls. Up until @Woodyg3 mentioned differences between gulls, I never realized there was more than one variety.

    So can anyone tell me what the big one is on the right? I am assuming it is some type of gull (and I probably shouldn't assume anything). This is a big crop from the original file. It was the only bird that was so much larger than the others.

    Looking in my Sibley's book, it looks like a 1st winter Ring billed Gull, but I'm not sure. You'll need @Kevin H or @Stoshowicz or someone else to confirm.

    Because the feathers of the mantle (back) is the same basic light-gray of the ring-bills (and in Penn.) , you can jump right to suspecting its a herring gull , if you look closely you'll see other traits which fall into place supporting that ID. Gulls take three or four years to mature, and alternate between a basic and alternate plumage (and that includes the ring on the bill )- so they're often difficult.
