Question #1

What is North America’s smallest gull?

Answer: Little gull. Common across Eurasia, this aptly named gull is a relatively new bird to North America, nesting here only since the 1960s. With a wingspan of 24 inches (similar to an American kestrel), the little gull often associates with large flocks of Bonaparte’s gulls, primarily along the East Coast and occasionally the Great Lakes.
