More About Gull

  • It is found near all oceans and many inland waters.
  • Gulls are larger and bulkier than terns, and their tails are squared rather than forked.
  • 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.
  • Yellow bill with black ring near the tip.
  • Head and underparts white.
  • Back light gray.
  • Wingtips black with white spots.
  • Legs yellow.
  • Size: 43-54 cm (17-21 in)
  • Wingspan: 105-117 cm (41-46 in)
  • Weight: 300-700 g (10.59-24.71 ounces)
  • Sexes alike in plumage, male slightly larger than female.
  • Young Ring-billed Gulls tested at only two days of age showed a preference for magnetic bearings that would take them in the appropriate direction for their fall migration.
  • Many, if not most, Ring-billed Gulls return to breed at the colony where they hatched. Once they have bred, they are likely to return to the same breeding spot each year, often nesting within a few meters of the last year's nest site. Many individuals return to the same wintering sites each winter too.
  • Although it is considered a typical large white-headed gull, the Ring-billed Gull has been known to hybridize only with smaller, black-headed species, such as Franklin's, Black-headed, and Laughing gulls.
