The Black-headed Gull is a small species of Old World gull that is found across large parts of Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. This is a migratory species that is also found in small numbers in northeastern North America.
Black-headed Gulls eat a diet heavy on insects and other invertebrates. They feed on worms, small aquatic insects, and small fish. They feed mostly while swimming or walking.
Black-headed Gulls are fairly long-lived (as are most gull species), regularly surviving into their 30s.
