Black-headed Gull

 

The Black-headed Gull is a small Gull that breeds in much of Europe and Asia, and also in coastal eastern Canada. Most of the population of Black-headed Gull is migratory and winters further south, but some Black-headed Gulls reside in the milder westernmost areas of Europe. The Black-headed Gull is not really a black-headed bird, more chocolate-brown – in fact, for much of the year, it has a white head. It is most definitely not a ‘seagull’ and is found commonly almost anywhere inland. Black-headed Gulls are sociable, quarrelsome, noisy birds, usually seen in small groups or flocks, often gathering into larger parties where there is plenty of food, or when they are roosting.
