Seagull

The Great Black-backed Gull, Larus marinus, breeds on the coasts of Euope and America as wll as in the Caribbean. It's a very large gull that takes about four to five years to mature. The call is a deep "laughing" cry. They are omnivores that scavange, hunt and often steal the catch of other seabirds.
