Subject: Help with odd gull
Sorry, the photos and video are poor.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure it's just a Bonaparte's gull but the feeding method makes me wonder. I've seen Bonaparte's diving like terns and swimming and picking but never anything like this. See the youtube for a short video of it dancing in the mud and feeding on, I guess, invertebrates.

Any validations for Bonepartes? Other thoughts?
