The Ross's Gull is a small species of gull that breeds across parts of the high Arctic.
Ross's Gulls are colonial breeders. They may nest alongside other seabird species in the same colony. They feed on a wide variety of prey items, including fish, beetles, flies, and other insects.
Ross's Gulls are named in tribute to the British naval officer and explorer Sir James Clark Ross. Ross's Gulls have a very large natural range and their conservation status is Least Concern as of December 2014.
