I got a couple of gull pics off the WA coast around June if I remember right. I think they are both Glaucous Gulls...? My other guesses were Western, or Western x Glaucous. Either way, fun to shoot. Any ID help appreciated as I'm new to identifying Gulls.

I'd guess they are the hybrids...pretty common her in norcal as well. I believe they are called olympic gulls but I could be wrong.

I found this site about Olympic Gulls. Pretty helpful.
