Gull Scout

Record #:
Fourteen species of gulls can be observed in North Carolina, depending on the season of the year, location, and being in the right place at the right time. Of that number, only three nest in the state-–the laughing gull, ring-billed gull, and herring gull. The other eleven gulls range from locally common to extremely rare. Adams describes physical features of the gulls and some of their behaviors, such as dropping shells onto rocks to break them open for food.
