08:19 pm - Little Seagull Lost
Little Seagull Lost

This juvenile seagull has been hanging around outside my office building for several days now, making sad keening noises. I recognize the noises as looking-for-mom noises, but she's nowhere to be seen -- and mama seagulls are usually very quick on the "My baby is in trouble! Must spring into action!"

We can't tell if his mother has decided now was the time to leave him to his own in the world, or if she died prematurely (there were reports of a dead seagull in the parking lot a few days ago, but who knows?) He doesn't seem ill nor injured; no visible injuries at least. He's just on his own and quite sad about the whole state of affairs.

He's lost all fear of people, too, mostly because I think people are taking pity on him and feeding him on their lunch breaks. I have yet to figure out if this is a good or bad thing. I haven't fed him myself. I don't know what would happen if Animal Control were called.

What would you name him?
You get negative points for using the words "jonathan" and "livingston" in your name suggestion.

No no, those are pigeons. Gulls kick pigeons' asses. I once saw a gull in Central Square swoop down, kill a pigeon, and fly off with its broken body. Seriously.

Are you sure it wasn't a hawk? Gulls don't prey on other birds, AFAIK.

Kitty.

Because 1) we don't know it's not female, and 2) I enjoy naming animals after other kinds of animals.

In college my friend and I named a seagull Tucker St. Lawrence. We wrote a poem about him. You should name him that.
