Back when I was a paramedic, I pulled up on a 7 car pileup on I-95.    After working through the injuries, a state trouper came up to me and asked if I knew what caused the wreck.    He told me to go look in front of the first car where I found a handful of baby ducks.    The first car slammed on the brakes for the ducks, the next six piled into the back of that.   Fortunately, nobody was injured in the first wreck.

Of course, by the time I cleared the scene some yahoo probably with excessive speed came around the bend and piled into the accumulated backup on the highway.   We put that person in a helo to Shock-o-Rama, don't know if they survived.

I used to use a damp towel when I worked in Florida. Even if you don't hit them, the loud pop usually scared them off. If you did hit them, it usually removed some feathers.

They are clever gulls though.

True story, bro:

When I was a kid I had a Jeep, and crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was part of my route to see relatives.

The top was down, and a seagull planted itself in my back seat. He/she wasn't making a fuss; it just sat there. During the time we were together I even started talking to it. As soon as I hit land again, the gull took off.

Motherfarker used me as a free ride! Why waste all that energy flying when you can hop in some dude's Jeep or convertible?

I don't care if they are protected.  If I'm eating an ice cream cone and the gull goes to grab it.  I'll grab it by the throat and wring its neck.

Swans are a protected species in Ireland. The damn things could be attacking you and all you can do is say, "Please stop" in angry Gaelic.

The cops might even arrest you for saying it angrily.

Cornwall Council insist the gulls are legally protected creatures and therefore cannot be culled.
Well, I think I know what your problem is.

I think gulls are cool. They're much smarter than they get credit for, and they're about the most adaptable birds on the planet. They exist almost everywhere (despite the "sea" in the name seagull) and they learn to eat just about anything.

If you ever wanted to know what a pack of foraging dinosaurs might have been like, look to the gulls. The way they "hunt", the way they fight each other for food, the way they work together to get a difficult target, and the way they communicate with each other. It's impressive, even if they're ridiculously annoying at times.

The other day I saw a flock of gulls in a parking lot trying desperately to tear open a discarded fast food bag that obviously had some food left in it. I watched for a while as the gulls took turns dragging, pecking, poking, pulling, carrying & dropping, and challenging each other over this bag. I finally walked right into the middle of the pack of them-- and they obligingly all stepped back just far enough for me to do this-- and I tore the bag open a bit at the bottom, then walked away. The gulls descended on the bag the second I tore it. They knew damned well what I was doing. They were smart enough to stick around-- not flee-- when I approached because they knew there was a chance I was going to provide them with access to this food, or at least provide them with some other source of food.

They ripped the bag to shreds, got at the fries and leftover sandwich bits and devoured those pretty quickly, and then moved on to another project.

There have been times when I sat in my vehicle in the parking lot at a former job to have my lunch, and the gulls would come around me and patiently wait for me to feed them. They would actually beg, and I'm certain it was the same flock of gulls every day. They would beg just like a dog (if it had wings); A begging, desperate look, an inquisitive whine, and sitting up (with their wings spread wide and upward) raising their head to track my hands and the food in them.

And so yeah, I'd toss them a bit of bread or a french fry. Maybe that makes me a bad person but I can't help it. I like gulls. I like that they're so damned resourceful. The chickadees, starlings, robins, and egrets can't be arsed to ask me for food. They don't put forth even half the effort the gulls do!

Crows and ravens are similar. In fact, they're often embroiled in little wars with the gulls, and I find it hard to resist trying to feed both of them.

But I've never had any birds swoop down and steal food out of my hand. I'm hoping that they sense that I'll relent and feed them anyway, so they leave me alone.

Don't these websites realize that ever Windows computer has a little app on it called "Snipping Tool" that completely negates their attempt to prevent people from linking/saving/copying images?

CSB/

I was walking down the street in DC a couple blocks from the White House circa 1990. There were a group of little kids, ages 6 to 10, with tennis rackets and a bag of white bread in a group on the side walk. it took me a minute to figure out what they were doing. They were tossing pieces of the bread up into the air and hitting the gulls with the tennis rackets as they swooped down.

Some dude chased them off. There were dead birds and bloody rackets left on the ground. Later a block or two over, I saw the kids tossing the bread in front of cars trying to have the birds get hit.
