|Seagull - Pic by Don Bobbitt|
It really doesn't take long sitting at a TIKI Bar in Florida, to realize that Seagulls are a wasted species of Bird.
Oh, I know, some conservationist is going to say that they serve some useful purpose in the great ecological plan of Mother Earth.
But, over the years here is what I have observed along our Beaches;
- Seagulls are scavengers. They spend their time trying to steal other peoples and species food.
- anywhere there is food served near the Ocean, they will be there, proverbial fork in hand, trying for a free meal.
And, just like that bothersome set of In-laws that everyone see to have, they can sneak upon any food that they see and scoff it up almost instantaneously.
Other than that, I see no othe contribution that they make to the ecology other than the occasional splash of Seahull Poop on my windshield ..... or umbrella ..... or Beach Chair ...... or Table!
