These pictures were taken yesterday and a wildlife management area near Townsend Montana.  I believe the gulls are Franklin's but not sure.  The other I have no idea.  There were several of these small birds foraging on the lake bed along with Killdeer and Baird's sandpipers.  Sorry for the poor quality pictures, it's still a little smoky here.  Your expert opiniions would be greatly appriciated. Thank You.

Not Franklin's - maybe Ring-billed but not sure.

And an American Pipit.

Edit: taking a closer look at the faces of those gulls they also could be Californias... but again, not sure. But I'm certain somebody on this forum will be able to ID them from your photo.

Thank You DouginBC!  I would never have thought of a Pipit, as a matter of fact I have never seen one before.  This would be a new bird for me!!  

I plan on going back to the same spot sometime soon.  Hopefully I can get a better picture of the gulls.
