Too close Shot this bird too close.. People feed these birds(practice which I don&#039;t support) and may be that&#039;s why they are so used to humans getting close. <br />
Individuals of same species around creeks or seashores are quite shy and will fly immediately on our approach. <br />

The black-headed gull is a small gull that breeds in much of Europe and Asia, and also in coastal eastern Canada. Most of the population is migratory and winters further south, but some birds reside in the milder westernmost areas of Europe. Some black-headed gulls also spend the winter in northeastern North America, where it was formerly known as the common black-headed gull. As is the case with many gulls, it was previously placed in the genus ''Larus''.

The genus name '' Chroicocephalus''.. more
