Unanimous opinion is that these were likely Bonaparte's gulls and that fits
with what I saw based on size (other gulls for comparison) and foraging
style. I would never have come up with Iceland/Thayers but for them being
seen at Carkeek and Gene Coulon... parks recently.

Thanks to those who kindly chimed in.
