Hood Will Hunting reports:

This morning I watched four Seagulls get into a knife fight on Causeway Street over sidewalk leftovers from Halftime Pizza. Yes it's that good.

Seagull in sea smoke in Boston Harbor

Kelley Hand braved the single-digit temps at Christoper Columbus Park this morning and got to watch seagulls in the sea smoke in Boston Harbor.

Jocelyn also scanned the sea smoke on the harbor.

Seagull says yo

After this seagull gave Rick a basic "Sup, bro?" at his downtown office this morning, Rick noticed the bird had a metal band around one leg. And it turns out the band may be from a research project up in Maine.

For the past week, dd808 has watched a bird he's calling Bugsy Seagull attack his or her own reflection in a Government Center window. The Animal Rescue League papered over the window, but Bugsy outsmarted them - he just moved to another window.

Turkey on a car in Brookline

Renee Graham went out to her Coolidge Corner driveway this afternoon, only to be confronted with this situation:

Guess I'll take the T tonight...

Not long after, though, the bird flew the, um, coupe: Read more.

Rabbit and tern in Boston's Back Bay

SteveBikes spotted this rabbit and young seagull giving each other the eye outside the Boston Athletic Club in South Boston.

UPDATE: As people are telling this bird-agnostic reporter, that's an immature gull, not a tern, so the headline's been adjusted accordingly. And thanks to Earl for the original headline idea.

Sad Mike Ross is sad about seagulls

Mike Ross tapped out a column today that's ostensibly about the problems with the American patent system but which is really about his hatred for seagulls.

Some see the world for all its glory; I see a bunch of problems in need of tinkering. My latest annoyance is seagulls. A peaceful day on the beach can suddenly turn Hitchcock when errant sunbathers leave unattended bags of chips on their blankets. I swear I once saw a seagull unzip a handbag on Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester.

Charles Glassenberg sadly watches some workers on the roof of the building next to his deal with some nesting gulls that were annoying other workers as they worked on the roof - they put their chicks in a cage and their nest in a bag, then took them downstairs:

... For the rest of the day the parent gulls swooped around, calling and squealing for their missing babies. They banged up against my window, several stories above, and swooped again and again over their abandoned nest site. ...

Some Everett high-school students learned yesterday what happens when you toss French fries into a busy street when seagulls are around: The seagulls swoop down to eat them, then get run over by a Masshole. Angela posts the grim photo:

... In total, four seagulls were hit, three of them obliterated by the car. The one surviving seagull wouldn't wait for wildlife services to get there. He ran across the street and was hit by another car. ...

Bruce wonders why a window washer wound up in jail for defending himself against an attacking seagull:

... Oh, sweet smoking Jesus, people! It was a goddamn SEAGULL! What the hell, you slap a pair of wings on a friggin' rat, and suddenly it's an endangered species or something???

What's next, prosecuting the Orkin man? ...
