Ring-billed gulls are sometimes called ‘parking lot gulls’, because they are often seen scavenging in restaurant parking lots. They are common birds on both coastal and inland areas in Florida, especially during the winter.
Ring-billed gulls are similar in appearance to the herring gull, but are smaller, with yellow legs and feet, and a dark ring on the bill.
