Seagulls

Seagulls are birds in the family Laridae. They are most closely related to the terns (the Sternidae family). Despite he name “Seagull”, you can find many species of gulls living, feeding and nesting inland. Seagulls are common around the oceans almost all over the world.

A lot of people see the seagulls as noisy and annoying scavengers. Yes, they do make some noise, they shit everywhere, and when it comes to food, they are ravenous and can be quite pushing, but they serve a task. They are an important part of natures sanitation service, and scavenge up great numbers of dead animals and organic litter which could pose a health threat to humans.

The gulls are uniform in shape, but they vary in size and colours. They are elegant birds, and they are excellent flyers. Seagulls can float motionless on wind currents for a long time. They have a very good vision, and can see fish below the water, even from great altitudes. Seagulls eat just about anything, from human organic disposals, to live marine animals.
