Duck, eagle, gull

I am not an expert at identifying birds so I tend to categorize simply. Here are a few friends with white feathers who were at the beach recently for Bird Weekly by Our Eyes Open.

Golden eyes are fun to watch as they pop in and out of sight.
A mature and, I think, immature bald eagle on the tide flats (the immature one might be an osprey, but it seems too big and the ospreys rarely alight on the beach-if you know please share). When they took off all of the gulls flew into the air.
A couple of different types of gulls. The larger one is immature, the smaller one does seem to have a mottled head which may mean it is not quite mature.
Another immature gull.
This one is almost mature. Only its head is still mottled.
