Laughing Gull At Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod

There is this one rock that emerges out of the water on Nauset Marsh when it is low tide and is usually occupied by a Seagull. This particular Laughing Gull was loving it as he stood there for a long time looking for lunch in the water below.

Laughing gulls are very distinctive with their black “hooded” heads and bright orange beaks. They got their name because when they call, they sound just like they are laughing!

You can see this one is starting to get his “winter plumage” of a black beak. His black hood will turn white during the winter months.

Have you ever seen a Laughing gull?
