INTERESTING FACTS
The Yellow-legged Gull was first described in 1840 by Friedrich Naumann, a German scientist and editor. It is now generally accepted that the Yellow-legged Gull is a full species, but until recently there was much disagreement. It was sometimes considered to be part of the same species as the Caspian Gull and the combined species was then called Larus cachinnans. A group of gulls has many collective nouns, including a "flotilla", "gullery", "screech", "scavenging", and "squabble" of gulls.
