To summarize this interesting family we can say that seagulls are very sociable, intelligent animals, they practice monogamy, basically a couple get together for life! What stands out about the seagulls is their beautiful yellow beak with a red spot! a strong body with great strength! ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“

Para resumir esta interesante familia podemos decir que las gaviotas son animales muy sociables, inteligentes, practican la monogamia, basicamente una pareja se juntan de por vida!

But calm down! seagulls have a dark side too! These are known to be too territorial, we have seen many videos of seagulls attacking people when they pass through their territory! there is evidence of seagulls killing people on the high seas! many country governments have taken steps to train raptors to hunt seagulls to avoid attacks!๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Pero calma! las gaviotas tambien tienen un lado oscuro! estas son conocidas por ser demasiado territoriales, hemos vistos muchos videos de gaviotas atacando personas cuando pasan por su territorio! hay evidencia de gaviotas que llegan a matar personas en alta mar! muchos gobiernos de paises han tomado medidas para entrenar aves rapaces que den caza a las gaviotas para evitar ataques!๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

In Argentina there is a problem that the government has been struggling with for years, and that is that seagulls attack the backs of whales that are in captivity, ripping the meat of these animals! you can already imagine the powerful peak they have!

Seagulls have been able to adapt to all circumstances, for example the California species flies long distances to nest, along the way they can feed on insects! there is a Mormon legend dating back to 1840 where seagulls helped exterminate a plague of insects that ate their crop!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

In my personal opinion, seagulls are one of the evolutionarily better adapted species for extreme environments, they are known to be species of marine environments, so they are far from drinking bodies of water, basically a seagull can drink salt water and make it drinkable thanks to some adaptations in your body!๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

En mi opinion personal las gaviotas son una de las especies evolutivamente mejor adaptadas para ambientes extremos, son conocidos por ser especies de ambientes marinos, por lo que estan lejos de cuerpos de agua potable, basicamente una gaviota puede beber agua salada y convertirla en potable gracias a unas adaptaciones en su organismo!๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“

Very sociable๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜

These birds are common in fishing areas, beaches, ports! currently you can get seagulls already within cities near rivers or sea! each time they are losing more and more fear for humans, to the point of stealing products from stores!

Estas aves son comunes en zonas pesqueras, playas, puertos! actualmente se pueden conseguir gaviotas ya dentro de las ciudades proximas a rios o mar! cada vez van perdiendo mas y mas el miedo por los humanos, hasta el punto de robar productos en tiendas!๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Seagulls in some countries are considered pests, since they make their nests in buildings, houses, squares! they are basically leaving the natural environment to live with us! but being great opportunists they see themselves feeding on waste!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚
Las gaviotas en algunos paises son consideradas plagas, ya que hacen sus nidos en los edificios, casas plazas! basicamente estan dejando el ambiente natural para convivir con nosotros! pero al ser grandes oportunistas se ven alimentadose de los desperdicios!๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Although birds are very territorial, they can be seen sharing land with other species, I have already seen seagulls with pelicans, abys, pelicans and many other species! good to share food ... I doubt it !!! ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Las aves apesar de ser muy territorias se pueden ver compartiendo terreno con otras especies, yo ya vi gaviotas con pelicanos, con abis, pelicanos y muchas otras especies! bueno compartir comida... Lo dudo!!!๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“

Seagulls are monogamists only have one partner for life, but they do not live with them all year round, basically only in the reproductive season, they always return to the same territory year after year to reproduce, the male makes sounds to attract his partner who is incredibly get to recognize his voice!๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ˜š
Las gaviotas son monogamas solo tienen una pareja de por vida, pero no viven con ellas todo el aรฑo, basicamente solo en epoca reproductiva, siempre regresan al mismo territorio aรฑo tras aรฑo para reproducirse, el macho emite sonidos para atraer a su pareja que increiblemente esta consigue reconocer su voz!โค๐Ÿ’ฅ

Before you think I was playing with the seagull, let me tell you that I basically released it, it had some plastic straps on its legs and well I got it released! but it wasn't easy because every time I picked it up I wanted to bite! XD๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Antes que piensen que estaba jugando con la gaviota dejame decirte que basicamente la solte, tenia amarrado unos plasticos en sus patas y bueno la consegui dejar en libertad! pero no fue facil porque cada vez que la levantaba me queria picar! xD๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

Very informative on the seagull, in Missouri where I live we have a ring billed gull that migrates from the Great Lakes in winter and can be seen on the Mississippi River and Missouri rivers. At least that is what I am aware of, we may have them else where on big body lakes but I don't know that for sure. Thank you for the education and information.

I think after reading so much about them, I kept thinking to myself what the hell if I had bitten a finger, would I rip it off? How stupid ... But good as karma helped me

I honestly believe an animal knows when you are helping them, they might be afraid but understand somehow you are not going to hurt them.

Well, as it was very close to my house, when it flew away, I would scream: Thank you, humannnnnn, when I fly over your car, I promise not to screw it uppppp. xD

We have California Gulls here in Utah.
