Gulls – #3 – Ring-billed Gull

Locally this is Ottawa’s most common Gull, they can be found rooting through your garbage if you put it out the night before or outside any fast food business, ready to snatch any food that drops from the table.

It is our smallest white headed gull, has a slender bill with a broad black ring, yellow legs, pale iris and pale gray mantle.

The Ring-billed can be found virtually anywhere in Canada and the US, they winter in the south but are pretty hardy.
