The Herring Gull is the quintessential basic "seagull," with no distinctive characters that immediately set it apart from other gull species. The characteristic gull of the North Atlantic, it can be found across much of North America.
Hunting for the millinery trade nearly extirpated it from parts of range in 1800s. It has come back to historic high population levels in some areas, and is extending its breeding range southward.
