Yeah, but: Anything's better than pigeons.

The Long Version: Unlike pigeons, I have a certain respect for seagulls. Not only do they fly, they're pretty good at it, and sometimes do it for fun. I've even heard stories that they exist outside of cities, where they actually work for a living.

And if that wasn't enough to earn them a little credibility, around here they take food from pigeons.

While I still call them seagulls, the bird that illustrates this review is properly called a ring-billed gull. They're the most common variety in Toronto, but we do get the occasional herring gull as well.


  1. In the '90s I worked with a guy who grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast and hated seagulls.
    One night after a gig I helped him catch one so he could take a dump on it "crap and release" style. It was a fitting payback for all those years when the birds had the same pleasure, and then his nightmares went away.
