Mew Gull

(Larus canus)

The mew gull nests on marshes and lakes in the interior of northwestern Canada and Alaska, as well as in Eurasia. In winter, when these inland waters freeze, the birds move to the Pacific coast, where they are common as far south as Southern California. The mew gull is smaller nd more agile than the glaucous-winged, western, and herring gulls, and is more adept at picking bits of food off the surface of the water. Only rarely does it visit garbabe dumps, where its larger relatives feed.
