I live an hour plus from the coast and I see flocks of seagulls in the grocery store parking lots sometimes, or around dumpsters, so I don't know how unusual it is. I guess if you have never seen them where you are then who knows. Is there a food source?
The Common Black Headed Gull is relatively new to North America, being first seen in Canada in the early 1900's. It is a small gull which breeds in much of Europe and Asia, and also in coastal eastern Canada. Most of the population is migratory, preferring to winter further south, but some birds in the milder westernmost areas of Europe do not migrate. Some birds that reside in eastern Canada will also spend the winter in the northeastern United States.
