Baby Birdorable: Herring Gull

September 17th, 2010 in Baby Birds, Gulls 2 comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Herring Gull. Herring Gulls lay their eggs in scrape on the ground, which may or may not be lined with vegetation, refuse, or other materials. Baby gulls are semi-precocial, able to walk and leave the nest after just one day.
