The gulls are generalist feeders. Indeed,
they are the least specialised of all the
seabirds, and their morphology allows
for equal skillfulness in swimming, flying,
and walking. They are more adept
walking on land than most other
seabirds, and the smaller gulls tend to
be more manoeuvrable while walking.
The walking gait of gulls includes a
slight side to side motion, something
that can be exaggerated in breeding
displays. In the air, they are able to
hover and they are also able to
take off quickly with little space.
