The book is intended to succeed Peter J. Grant's Gulls: A Guide to Identification as the standard identification work on Northern Hemisphere gh the Helm series already contained a volume on seabirds, by Peter Harrison Author: Klaus Malling Olsen and Hans Larsson. The Second Edition of Peter Grant's guide has been extensively revised and has been reset throughout.

    Gulls range in size from the little gull, at grams (4 1 ⁄ 4 ounces) and 29 centimetres (11 1 ⁄ 2 inches), to the great black-backed gull, at kg (3 lb 14 oz) and 76 cm (30 in).They are generally uniform in shape, with heavy bodies, long wings, and moderately long necks. The tails of all but three species are rounded; the exceptions being Sabine's gull and swallow-tailed gulls.   Ernest K. Gann This book is a new and valuable citizen in that very wondrous world ruled by St.-Exupéry's Little Prince. I suspect all of us who visit the worlds of Jonathan Seagull will never want to return. Ray Bradbury Richard Bach with this book. does two things. He gives me Flight. He makes me Young. For both I am deeply grateful/5().

      A gull’s transition from brown juvenile to gray-and-white adult can take as many as four years, with a bunch of confusing plumages in between. A few more rapid-fire annoying things about gulls: Different gull species have a habit of mating with each other, producing hybrid birds with plumage characteristics of two species. Great.
