About this book

Seafarer Marlin Bree captures the poetry of the seagull's flight, the majesty of its soaring wings, and its amusing antics as gulls gregariously interact with humans. Through black-and-white digital stop-sequence photography, this tribute introduces their habits and habitats, their special abilities, and their remarkable intelligence. Via detailed drawings and illustrations, Bree examines the gulls' 'wings of wonder' and how they achieve their amazing sense of air, control their soaring and hovering, and remain aloft over great distances.

Amazing Gulls also recounts fascinating legends that have sprung up over the years about gulls and their mystical symbolism in life and death, as well as light-hearted stories, such as that of Sam, a gull who walks into a seafront store and picks up the same brand bag of chips day after day.
