The scientific literature calls ring-billed gulls opportunistic omnivores or as the gulls themselves would say:
“We’ll eat anything and we’ll snatch it from anybody.”
Early this month Shawn Collins photographed this behavior when a gull caught some bread at Pymatuning Spillway.
The chase was on.
He was nearly overrun by the gang when … ooops! he dropped a big chunk!
The bread fell free for all of them.
The result was a free-for-all.
