File:Great Black-backed Gull.jpg

Who is the biggest baddest gull of all? In this corner we have the Great Black-backed Gull, weighing in at 3.5 pounds (1.65 kilos) and sporting a wingspan of 65". The dark back and large bill are indeed impressive, and the light iris with red orbital ring add to the beauty of the beast. Pink legs complete the picture.
