Story behind:

The genus name Chroicocephalus is from Ancient Greek khroizo, “to colour”, and kephale, “head”. The specific ridibundus is Latin for “laughing”, from ridere “to laugh”.

The black-headed gull displays a variety of compelling behaviours and adaptations. Some of these include removing eggshells from one’s nest after hatching, begging coordination between siblings, differences between sexes, conspecific brood parasitism, and extra-pair paternity. They are an overwintering species, found in a variety of different habitats.
