Normally turns dive under the water to feed but this time it was gulls.
I haven't seen this type of behaviour before.
They looked like northern gannets diving for food.

The Bonaparte's Gull is the only gull that regularly nests in trees.

During the breeding season, the Bonaparte's Gull feeds mainly on insects, often catching them on the wing.
