    I'd say they're excellent catchers. Feeding seagulls day-old Dollar Tree bread outside an abandoned Giant today. How sad is that?seagullfeedmontage.jpg

    WHen I was a kid we would throw food at them to get them to come to us, then after a while we would throw lit firecrackers to them to see if they would grab them. We were never successful in blowing up a seagull (unfortunately).

    I've heard of some pretty awful things too... Raw rice, draino soaked bread, etc.

    When I was a kid, they swarmed every drive-in in town. Now you never see them away from the river. Not sure what's changed... covered garbage cans? Something about the switch from local drive-ins to McChains?

    I literally dodge seagulls (and pelicans and buzzards) every fucking day as I fly over the beaches.

    One of these days I'll find someone who'll lend me a GoPro to record the experience (too cheap to buy my own). It's fucking amazing how these larger birds think an airplane is a meal, and fly straight for it. icon_lol.gif

    Just don't stand underneath them too long after you've fed them.

    Richmond VA is on a river, but still a good ways from the seashore.

    I used to go to a drive-in burger joint for lunch and sit in the car in the parking lot which was loaded with swooping seagulls.

    All it took was tossing one french fry out the window to start a war.

    I will say they were a little reluctant to come closer with the camera out the window. I felt bad for the ones further back than I could throw.

    Woke up with a very sore arm this morning, wondering what in the world? Now I know, it was from tossing bread out the window as hard as I could for these shots. Someone needs to do more arm exercises.
