Seagulls are smarter than your average bird...even if they are rats with wings.


Seagull........"bird" in the UK is a term used to describe a female......... similar to the term "chick".......but I assume you were talking about birds of the feathered variety!


Well your average bird is probably pretty smart seeing as scientist have recently discovered that some species of birds use tools to problem solve and are smarter than monkeys and dogs......and lets not forget that African grey parrots not only "talk" but seem able to communicate with speech rather than just repeat words "parrot" fashion.

Birds are a smart species.......and they can fly too!

I have never seen a seagull in my village before


....That's the important bit. And I suspect you're right. They're escaping the coming storm - or maybe something else is already happening.

Good luck. Stay warm and stay safe.

we're about 11 or so miles aw2ay from the sea and have them all the time for as long as I can remember...perfectly normal.

Indeed, I was...

I grew up around the disgusting creatures, but there is no denying their very real intelligence. Almost, though not quite, on a par with ravens and crows.

I've seen seagulls harass eagles into dropping freshly caught salmon. Which crows and ravens do as well.

...and come a big storm, hours before hand, the seagulls are gone to ground, or miles away.

Well that would depend on how observant the OP has been during his/her life time........just because the OP has never noticed a seagull in his/her village before doesn't mean they haven't been there before, or hasn't been observed by other villagers before.

Generally when I have heard seagulls flying overhead it has been very early in the morning, so they seagulls may have flown thousands of times over the OP's village before.......only the OP was asleep at the time.....so he/she didn't notice.

Why on earth would you assume his perceptions aren't trustworthy?!?

I live in Winnipeg, smack dab in the middle of North America - and see seagulls all the time, even pelicans. No big deal except I really like them around.

On the other hand, when I lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I never saw a single bird of either species. Missed them. And believe me, if a seagull or pelican flock had appeared there, I would have been MOST concerned.
