Stormy Petrel on a stick....

Or maybe you prefer a Gannet Ripple? Ok, how about a bunch of black-headed gulls on a line?

But remember, there is no such thing as a seagull.

what>>>>???? well, there are actually about fifty gull species living in habitats all over the world, oceanic and otherwise. And none of these is actually a "seagull".

Who you calling a seagull?

Well, go ahead, call it what you like. My point - and that of other birdy pedants - is that by using more precise terms you can help discourage a tragic misconception: that there’s only one kind of seagull. The kind that nicks your sandwich and poops on your car, and is as common as muck, or even a "rat with wings". Some of the gulls are endangered, and needs that recognition, and anyway, each gull species is unique and deserves to be recognised as such.

Here are some black seagulls.

Just know what these are, don't you?
