Laughing gulls do not simply laugh, they laugh at you. Meanly. They are so funny.
I first saw these birds just a few weeks ago, on Amelia Island, Florida. The shores are crowded with people scanning the waterline for shark teeth. We did that too, and I'm sure the gulls were laughing at us, because we didn't find a single tooth.
This poor gull's bill is so much bigger than it should be, it almost looks like a pelican.
