Gulls, Terns & Skimmers. Franklin’s Gull. Leucophaeus pipixcan, L " Look for The Franklin’s gull is a small gull with short wings and a short bill, and a dark hood at all times of year. During breeding season, its entire head is black except for white crescents above and below its eyes. At other times of year, the hood is.

      We studied seven mixed-species colonies of terns and skimmers on the Virginia barrier islands in and to determine the effect of gull predation on nesting success. We compared intensity of gull predation and other agents of egg or chick mortality between tern and skimmer colonies on islands that also contained nesting gulls and colonies on islands that lacked nesting gulls. Terns . Gulls and terns are versatile birds that use a broad range of habitats, including fresh and salt water, sandy beaches and fields. Terns have angular wings and pointed beaks. Both terns and gulls have webbed feet. Leg and bill color are key characteristics that help with identification. Gulls take three to four years to reach adult coloration.
