Without seeing the tail I'm not sure, but I think this is a Wrentit. Look at this other recent post from Oregon.

Pale iris, coloration and bill says Wrentit for me.

I agree with Red Crossbill and juvenile American Dipper.

I'll trade a look at a hummer for your look at this gull, really tough for me.

Where were those taken, zoutedrop? The first one looks like a Herring Gull, but with no location and no view of the upperside I wouldn't want to say for sure. The second one looks like a Pelagic, alright, and anywhere you might see a Pelagic you could find several other gulls.

Thanks for the comment on the gull. All birds are NW Oregon in August. Here is another gull.

Hi Liam, thanks. I've been busy with two iBird assignments and this vacation to Oregon, which sadly was not a birding trip. Beautiful state though.

Any thoughts on the last gull posted anyone (two more shots below)? I am not familiar with IDing gulls, maybe these angles are not diagnostic. The underwing pattern seems clear, but I could not find a match in Sibley's.
