Gulls fight over food
Gull in Flight
Gull with Unusual Plumage
Mid Air Collison
In an urbanized or even rural area in Southern Ontario, this bird, or its cousins, would be dismissed as a nuisance,but in this area they are an integral part of river life. They are also one of the great fliers who ride the warm air thermals, the others being the hawks, and the crows or their cousins, the ravens. They are distinguished from Herring Gulls by the ring on their beak.
