Favorite Gull guide?

And there is this critique note the quote by Steve Howell for this already out of print 2004 book. Noteworthy because he and John Dunn wrote a guide on gulls of NA for Peterson in 2007.

I've decided to bite the bullet and stop just submitting my eBird gulls as "gull sp.," and actually try to ID them. We don't have too many species here (although the California Gull is Utah's state bird); Calif. in summer, Ring-billed in winter, some Herrings, and this winter a few scattered LBBs, Thayers, and maybe some Mews.

"The Sibley Guide to Birds" is good, covers eastern and western birds, and is very useful for not only gulls. (Sibley's Birding Basics was also good)
Cornell's sight can be useful
There a lot of great photos at pbase.com
Googling works Try "Ring-billed Gull vs Mew Gull" and you get a lot of good information
or any relevant term e.g., "Gull molt" and get this
and there are countless more
