Seagulls And Fast Food

We live about 70 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.  I’ve always thought seagulls were found on the oceans, near land.  So they could hang out on the land and ocean, dive for fish, and then hang out on or near land.

But that’s just in the movies.  In real life, seagulls live next to fast food restaurants and in parking lots near grocery stores.

Silly me.

    Hahahaha 🙂 You are SOOO right!!!! I grew up in New Bern, NC and spent most of my adult life near Morehead at Cherry Point. Most of our seagulls were in the Sonic parking lot or Carteret Hospital parking lot that was next to Fast food restaurants 😂

  2. I lost count of the number of times we were dive bombed for chips by these damn birds on coastal holiday resorts. They are in abundance here on the marina on the look out for the tiny newly hatched ducklings and moorhen chicks. I don’t like them, and will do what we can to thwart them.

      It’s crazy. I should actually read up on seagulls because I really thought they only ate fish. In the real seagull world, not in post fast food apocalypse seagull, hamburger eating world, that is.

    They also thrive in cities that have garbage collection problems. I took a photo of one perched on my car last July right in the center of Rome. You gave me an idea: I might just post it 🙂

    We see them on the parking lot at Walmart here. TN is not close to any ocean. I’ve heard them called rats with wings. My kids did used to like throwing bread up in the air and watching them catch it, though.
