Loud hysterical laughing. Hear one Laughing Gull and it’s comical, hear a hundred and it hurts.
This marshland is about 19 miles (30 km) from the Atlantic Ocean. The Laughing Gull lives along the coast and while it loves the ocean has no issues with feeding in marshes.
Above one flies low and grabs a small fish, right between much larger Wood Storks.
These Gulls might show up in a small group or in a flock of a hundred. It depends on what they have seen from up high.
I enjoy their antics when only a few are around, a large flock is like having all your relatives stop by at the same time.
