Gull

The California Gull is the Utah state bird because in 1848 the gulls flew in flocks from California to the Salt Lake Valley and consumed tens of thousands of "Mormon Crickets" that were devouring the crops, saving the harvest. It's called 'The miracle of the gulls'.

The herring gull's cry features in the opening of the long-running BBC Radio 4 program Desert Island Discs.

In 2002 an Anglesey man had a heart attack after being attacked by gulls protecting chicks.

Gulls are opportunist and eat almost anything.
