The Bird That Symbolizes Me is the Great Black-backed Gull
The Great Black-backed Gull (Larus Marinus) is the largest
species of gull in the world. It's massive size and heavy bill make
it a strong hunter, it will feed on almost anything edible. Mostly
confined to the sea but sometimes gathers with smaller gulls inland
Great Black-backed Gulls have dark grey backs, mine
is an unsaturated, navy-blue colour.
Why the Great Black-backed Gull?
I've always been fascinated with gulls and anything to do with water,
in particular the oceans, when I was very young I considered myself
a Mallard. As I grew older
I went through many different species. Around two years ago I settled
with the Great Black-backed Gull due it's size, strength and majesty.
Gulls in particular have been a favourite of mine because they are
extremely misunderstood and dismissed by many. They are fantastic
birds with a lot of character, I often go to watch gulls out at sea,
very entertaining. My love for gulls is also associated with their
size, I really love large birds.
