Herring gull eating Common Eider chick, Phippsburg, Maine. Herring gulls and Great Black Backed gulls are significant predators of baby birds. The gull stole the baby eider from its mother, then thrashed it on the rocks until it could up end it and swallow it whole. Though sometimes sad, all living things must eat something else to stay alive. - Robin Robinson Maine
