This young Laughing Gull is a medium sized gull with a gray back, white underparts and neck, a grayish hood and dark bill with red highlights. The younger laughing gulls have not yet reached full adult plumage. These gulls are found on offshore islands and coastal shorelines around Cape Cod. This gull was recently seen from a kayak on a small island in Lackey’s Bay off of Naushon Island. They normally forage while walking along the shoreline for snails, crabs, and fish.
