Friday's Foto

The Great Black-backed Gull is one of four common gull species found around New York City (laughing, ring-billed and herring being the other three). The largest gull in the world, their wingspan can reach nearly six feet. These opportunists feed on everything from small fish to refuse. I've also seen one kill and eat a Laughing Gull.
