This week's featured bird is something to giggle about - the laughing gull really does have a laugh-like call that helps distinguish it from other hooded gulls. The bold breeding pattern of this bird is great to see, and successfully identifying this gull either by sight or sound is sure to bring a smile to any birder's face.
