Join us in the following days as we celebrate all things gulls with our second Gull Week! Our first Gull Week was back in 2015. Gulls are part of a widespread family of social and intelligent seabirds.
Birdorable has 23 species of gull so far, out of the approximately 55 recognized species of gull in the world. We'll add a couple more this week to make it a cool 25!
To kick off the week, let's take a look back at how we've featured gulls here at Birdorable in the past:
- We shared a Gull Glossary of terms and keywords related to gulls. Read more
- We told readers about Gulls Named for People, like Bonaparte's Gull and Heermann's Gull. This week we'll add another one of these named gulls to Birdorable! Read more
- We shared the story of a particular individual Lesser Black-backed Gull named Pierre. Read more
- We added three species to our collection of free downloadable bird coloring pages. Read more
- We answered some Frequently Asked Questions About Gulls. We'll have another batch of Gull FAQs for this Gull Week. Read more
