SILVER GULL Larus novaehollandiae


The common gull of Australia, New Zealand & New Caledonia, this is the bird which gets injured at cricket matches!. The New Zealand birds, of which the two right-hand birds are representative, are now often split as Red-billed Gull, Larus scopulinus, there being slight morphological differences. Gregarious birds, they are often found inland as well as coastally.
