Black-headed gull, reflected in the rippling cobalt blue waters of a lake. Despite the name, black-headed gulls spend the majority of the year with white plumage, their heads only developing the chocolate brown hood in the summer breeding season. Black-headed gulls are an inland gull, definitely not a seagull. They are gregarious, noisy, quarrelsome birds, breeding in large colonies near inland bodies of water such as reedbeds, marshes or nesting on islands within lakes. A Black-headed gull with the name Kehaar was featured in the film Watership Down.
