Agree, and Norm has additional shots he shared privatelywhere the gull
is at the edge of the frame that also appearto support Laughing
structurally.

Single photos of a bird, even decent photos such as this can be
problematic. That written, I don’t see any reason to disagree with
the assertion that this is a Laughing Gull. The bill looks rather long
and heavy.. The eye arch, particularly the lower one, appear rather
thin. Both of these marks are favorable to Laughing Gull.
