Imagine actually liking gulls.
Gulls are the actual flying rats, not pigeons. And even then they're more like raccoons with how big they are. These fuckers spread trash all over the place.

I was taught to hate gulls but when I really think about it I can't think of a good reason why.
They're cheeky to be sure, but so are tits and magpies and I like those. What is so bad about a gull, really?
I am throwing away my hate of the gull until someone can argue why I shouldn't.

They nest on people's roofs and won't shut the fuck up at 3am, they steal people's food and they attack people and children. Many also live miles inland now and shouldn't even be bothered being called a sea gull. Also massive shits
>>
fact: if you lost your food to a gull, it was never yours to begin with
you got outsmarted by a bird, gather what dignity you have left and take the loss

So why is it that herring gulls would fly over 400miles inland in North Carolina, and about 20miles away from a lake, to eat fries and bread in a Foodlion parking lot?
>>
>>4754551
Parking lot makes convenient thermals to ride for easy flying. Abundant greasy human food is often bite-sized and rich in calories that they can usually digest somewhat ok enough. Not much cover for predators to hide either. It’s a cushy niche they’re capable of filling and the shittons of blacktop people put everywhere and food left near it create an easy to fly corridor straight to it. It’s not 400 miles walking through a maze of obstacles and starving, it’s just gliding along wherever the nice air currents coming off all the roads and cities between beach and parking lot take em or following whatever truck has the tastiest morsels loaded on it.
>>
>>4754579
Well, I'm glad when they do make it through. It's not as common anymore, but when I was a kid, they were all over the place.
Always wanted to nab one, but never got to.

People won't stfu at 3am too and bring loud cars, blaring streetlights etc. to wild habitats disrupting the nature there. Again, gulls were there first

Based, can't defend your food from other animals then you don't deserve to eat it

I've lived in a coastal town all my life and I don't think I've heard the seagulls at night ever.

I feel like, as with many things, they get more scrutiny simply because they aren't cute.

It goes like:
