It's become a naturalist's cliche to say that there's no such thing as a seagull. We just say "gull," or if we know the species, as in this case, we say "ring-billed gull" Larus delawarensis.* The ring-bill is one of the most common urban gull, and the smallest in our area. About the size of a small crow, these gulls happily feed in parking lots and other places where humans leave edible trash. Among gulls in New England, they're the worst ones to call "seagulls." They prefer to nest near fresh bodies of water.

* Delaware gull. (tough one)
