ABSTRACT
Gull, a web-footed, long-winged bird found both on oceans and inland waters. It is closely related to the tern. A gull is from 13 to 28 inches (33 to 71 cm) long. The bill is heavy and slightly hooked, and the tail is squarish. A gull usually has whitish underparts, with gray back and upper-wing surfaces. In some species, the head is black and the wings are black-tipped. Any gull found near sea water is called a sea gull.
