Silver Gull

Silver Gull

Shot during the short break on the way to Norval Camp. We were feading these gull the disgusting vegetarian sandwhiches that we got as we were the last few to take.


Their plumage is usually white with gray or black markings on the back, wings, and head. Their long, narrow wings are adapted to soaring and their webbed feet to swimming. They have strong bills, hooked at the end; they eat clams and fish and sometimes insects, but are most useful as scavengers in harbors and bays. They are often seen hovering over the wakes of ships, seeking refuse, and frequenting garbage dumps.
