The 5 Seagulls You’ll Find on New Jersey Beaches
You say seagull, I say rat with wings... regardless, when you're heading to any of our beautiful Jersey Shore beaches this summer, you're sure to see at least one! The question is, just which seagull will it be?
This gull seems to be just effortlessly floating in the breeze, eyes closed, with not a care in the world. It’s the equivalent of the dog that sticks its head out the window of a moving car, soaking it all in, and just enjoying the moment. We should all be so peaceful!
This bird’s here and he wants all of you to know it. There’s nothing wrong a little bit of ambient seagull noise, but the decibels reached by this guy are off the charts.
We’ve all been there...just sitting on your blanket trying to enjoy a peaceful day at the beach, or moseying down the boardwalk, and BOOM! Seagull poo all over your shoulder....or worse, your hair! They say it’s good luck, but we all know that's a lie someone told the first victim so they wouldn't feel so bad!
One seagull’s trash is another seagull’s treasure. This guy has been diving in dumpsters since he hatched and is proud of it. We wouldn’t mind him so much if he wasn’t making such a mess! You can't put the garbage BACK into the proper trash receptacle when you're done? You're not from here, are you gull?
This gull sees you, and thinks, 'What’s yours is mine, right?' This narcissistic seagull thinks that anything in your cooler, or even your hand, is rightfully his. If he doesn’t get what he wants right away, he’s not afraid to resort to intimidation: inching closer and demanding to be fed. The only thing I feed them is a line of expletives or a loud "GET OUTTA HERE!!"
