Black Headed Gull - Winter Plummage

Uploader's Comments


Not really a black-headed bird, more chocolate brown, for much of the year it has a white head. It is found commonly almost anywhere, including inland. Black-headed gulls are sociable, quarrelsome, noisy birds, usually seen in small groups or flocks, often gathering into larger parties where there is plenty of food, or when they are roosting.

Thank you for your visit and your comments, they are greatly appreciated.
