Ring-billed Gull

Larus delesarensis

Description:

White and Gray with a yellow beak with an angry ocean behind it.

Habitat:

Frequents Coast lines

Notes:

Normally this is a very calm, slow moving gulf coast, but yesterday the winds were whipping up the ocean so much that it would tear the foam off the wave and skid it along the beach!
