Parking Lot Gull / Adaptability

Parking Lot Gull - Adaptability

Gulls are informally called "seagulls", but not all of them reside by the sea. Most Ring-billed Gulls breed and feed inland and many Ring-bills never see the sea.

In the recent years, the Ring-billed Gull has become the most common gull in North America. It is omnivorous, it frequently scavenges, it has learned to take discarded or unattended food from people, and it commonly violates the Eighth Commandment. They are known as "Parking Lot Gulls" because they often occupy fast food areas. Hey Mr. Ring-bill, McDonald's is not good for you! The Ring-billed Gull is among the most adaptable of wildlife.
  • Change is not merely necessary to life - it is life.
  • -- Futurist, Alvin Toffler
Adaptability is the ability (of a species) to adjust itself readily to different conditions. When we look at the human species, we can see that we have successfully adapted to the respective physical environments that we live in. On the other hand, when look at history, we realize that it is full of recurring events - we have learned very little from the past.
