Gull of the Rings

H.J. Ruiz - Avian101

There’s one species of gulls from the variety we have in the western hemisphere, that have recovered from a near extinction to be one of the most numerous we have around nowadays. This bird is the Ring-billed Gull. If you don’t see them at the sea shore then you can find them at any lake, pond, parking lot, or in large numbers at any city’s garbage dump. Here is some more information about this gull:

The Ring-billed Gull (Larus delawarensis) is a medium-sized gull.

Adults are 19 in. length and with a 49 in. wingspan. The head, neck and underparts are white; the relatively short bill is yellow with a dark ring; the back and wings are silver gray; and the legs are yellow. The eyes are yellow with red rims. This gull takes three years to reach its breeding plumage; its appearance changes with each fall molt.
