Gulls of the Texas Coast

Gulls seem to be just about everywhere and since they are so common I thought I would do a post about them.

The largest of the gulls commonly seen is the Herring gull. I took this photo last year on Mustang Island.

Without a doubt the most common gull is the Laughing gull. Taken a couple of days ago on Mustang Island.

Then there's the Ring-billed gull. Also taken on Mustang Island a couple of days ago.

Not seen nearly so often, is the Bonaparte's gull. However, they do stand out in a group of gulls, because they are so much smaller. Taken on Mustang Island several days ago.
