Lesser Black backed Gull-s Coeymans Landing

After having a good look at the photo, and consulting others, I’ve added the upper left bird as a LBBG as well. It’s a 1st year immature bird. The contrasting darker mantle plus the barely visible dark tail band are clues. When the birds flew by I was suspicious but slow at getting the camera up, cycled on, and focused. By then, both birds were pretty far away; hence, the crummy photos.
