The breeding Season of Gulls - Nature and Wildlife 28

Gulls fly over the lake


A couple months ago, when we walked around our city lake, we met almost no people, but migration birds sitting on the lake’s surface.


We saw a lot of people and birds, especially gulls, they flew over the lake in quite large numbers in our recent visit. It seems that kids happily gave them extra foods.


Gulls are cosmopolitan birds, can be found in many parts of the world, but almost not exist in the jungles, deserts and mountains.


We might know that gulls abundance in the coastal areas or in quiet islands. However, they also live in areas such as:

- urban areas

- suburban areas

- parking lots

- agricultural fields

- rivers

- lakes


Few birds catch the food on the water surface.


As reported by Melissa Mayntz in the Spruce (2019) that there are 50 species of gull in the world.


Gulls frequently visit our city lake, they are at least 6 species from small to moderate to great numbers at certain seasons:

- Ring billed gull

- Herring gull

- Bonaparte’s gull

- Lesser black backed gull

- Laughing gull

- Franklin’s gull


Most winter gulls migrate from Northern to mainly in Southern states of USA, and even to Mexico.


Then, the birds mating as early as February, and followed by breeding seasons in the southern states.


A female has 2 to 4 eggs, hatching after 25 days. The little gulls are able to fly after 5 weeks.


At the ages of 7 weeks old, the gulls are independent, and ready to back to North.

  1. ...there sure are a lot of varieties of gulls. I believe that we have Ring billed gulls.

  2. In the market places they catch food off people's hands. Children are shocked to see their ice cream fly away. Sea gulls are noisy but very pretty when they fly.

  9. We stay away from the tourist gulls if we can. They are hungrier than the ones in our backyard. I like your water Reflections, they show nicely.
    I think you saw the "Goose" on my blog that I was calling a "Duck". Margaret of Ireland is a birder and she informed me that it was a "Muscovy Duck" common to Central America and Mexico but is moving northwards. Our Houston, Ttexas, area is 70 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico shore. I say :Climate Change."
    Thank you for your visit and nice comment. ..

  10. Great post!
    Where I'm from they are considered a plague! They are absolutely everywhere. Although, they are usually not dangerous, they love to steal food from people!

    The lake is great.

  14. I find this post very intereting, most of us see gulls in our daily life but I bet none of us ask ourselves anything about them. Good post :)

  15. Tanza, We have many seagulls here hanging around our dams and the huge reservoirs. Like crows, gulls are always entertaining to watch, although I think that crows think more independently. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  17. Laughing gulls, herring gulls and black-backed gulls nest in North Carolina, usually on estuarine islands or spoil islands. The rest migrate up or down the coast.

    I did not know there were so many types of gulls!
