Laughing All The Way

Venezuelan Laughing Gull

Venezuelan Laughing Gull

Meet the Venezuelan Laughing Gull. Known in Venezuela as Guanaguanare. This bird also vacations in the Virgin Islands. From the end of April till September these gulls show up by the hundreds. Looking for hand outs of any kind. Stealing fish right out of the beaks of pelicans. They are real charmers. They also have a charming call. Well, it’s charming for about 5 minutes and then you find yourself reaching for ear plugs (or a pellet gun.)
