Aren’t they a funny looking Bird? I love them. Not so smart. Mark actually caught one with his fishing pole one day. It was quite the struggle to free him. He had to tow him in the water around the fishing peer, grab his beak so he would not bite him and release him. We were so relieved when he was released and relatively unharmed. The seagulls would actually go after your bate but would let them go when they realized it was attached. One duck was a master thief. Even when you tried to reel in he would dive under the water and snatch you bate. It was quite the game for him.
