Sunday Sketch: Soaring Seagulls

While they are commonly known as “seagulls,” these critters are properly known as gulls from the family Laridae, a family of seabirds. These birds are known to populate every continent on Earth (yes, even Antarctica)! They have become well known for their publicly deemed “annoying” behaviors, because of their noisy and messy nature.
