seagulls, gulls, and terns too why not.
Dreyfus once wrote from Devil's Island that he would see the most glorious birds. Many years later in Brittany he realized they had only been seagulls... For me they will always be - glorious birds.

Working on the boat with my father this late summer - willing to eat out of my hand, this one.
My dad is a clam digger and I’m constantly feeding the seagulls clams when they break. I always try to be fair and feed the less aggressive ones as well lol
Today I have one a piece of my coffee cake and another a small piece of a chocolate chip cookie. Is this okay? Usually I just give them shell fish or a piece of my sandwich - I can’t really find a consistent source on it so I figured I’d ask.
Also- is there anything toxic to seagulls in general?

Could 1,000 seagulls pull a whale out of the ocean like a skill crane?
Legs is missing a foot and is bullied out of food by other seagulls due to his/her disability, so I make sure Legs gets fish everyday.
I notice hundreds of seagulls start heading a direction once it starts to get dark. Its actually an amazing and beautiful sight to see. I'm not sure exactly what they're doing but they all go together.
They sit high on the roof top, but only come over to store for me and one other coworker. They don’t move for other two or customers. Is it Love or the Food?
I know they mate for life so they rarely divorce, I’m just curious about the stats.
For context, if I'm out and about and I see a seagull picking at a packet, or maybe a whole apple, I'll go help em. So I'll pour the contents of the bag onto the sidewalk, or if it's a food item I'll try and break it up into smaller pieces so that they can actually eat it.
My question is, will they actually remember this? Is it a crow type situation where overtime they'll think I'm really cool, or do seagulls not work like that?
I posted a picture of a baby gull pigging down a slice of bread that was thrown into my garden awhile ago. Earlier today, the baby tried swooping onto an adult that was in my garden and I watched as It‘s foot bent back and break on a bit of concrete sticking up. There are no rescues that help gulls around me, apart from birdaid but they apparently don’t take rescues. There is an rspca in brighton but i’m worried about going to them because of the articles about them putting down perfectly healthy animals.
I live in east sussex, would calling WRAS be good?
The baby can still fly but it can’t walk very well and i’m scared for him. My dad and mum said that he’ll be fine but what if he won’t be?? I enjoy seeing him in my garden so much, I don’t know what i’ll do. My entire family is also quite sick (thankfully not covid) but i’m not sure how far my mum and I would be able to drive if we do find a place to take care of him.
I tried grabbing him and he was walking away really slowly but I didn’t want to scare him and I have no idea what to do.
The picture is of him from the other day.
I couldn’t remove the bread as i’m allergic to any bread that isn’t egg, gluten and wheat free but I feel so bad, I don’t understand why someone would do this
