Please identify ducks and gulls?

I hope you can help identify these birds in the attached web connection to my gallery photo (currently photo#5 of 662.

My guess is that the two white gulls are Iceland Gulls. Definitely, not herring gulls and I can't see the ring on the bill to be Ring Bill Gull. Could they be adolescent Mew Gulls? Did I guess correctly?

Small swimming ducks could be American Widgeon?  To me however, when I zoom in, the female has a head and bill like a merganser:

For some time I was fortunate to have the assistance of a reliable local person who would identify uncommon birds for me.   That source is gone and I sure would appreciate a better 2nd opinion.  Would it help better to attach the photo computer file?  Do you know of a Canadian website which gives free bird recognition?
