Dolphin Gulls are sub-antarctic birds, living in the coastal regions of the southern ocean, and like most gulls can usually be found around boats and people, searching for hand-outs.
They are native to Patagonia, specifically Chile, Argentina and The Falkland Islands. Vagrants will visit the Sandwich and South Georgia Islands. They are quite beautiful snow-white birds and are smaller than most gull species, with much shorter, less lethal beaks.
This happy gull likes the freshly fallen rain water,
and drinks all he can the conventional way,
before turning his head almost completely upside down to guzzle more down!
Cheers to you from the Dolphin Gulls of the southern latitudes~
