Below: An adult Little Gull with Bonaparte's Gulls at the Ocean City Inlet, Maryland (12/5/2010). In addition to the diagnostic black underwings, note the structural differences, including daintier impression, smaller bill, and very rounded wings. The latter feature provides a different overall flight impression even at a distance.
