South Padre Island

In South Padre Island you will find many lovely bird species. One of them is called the Laughing Gull. Why the “Laughing” name? I also wondered. The Laughing Gull’s English name is derived from its raucous kee-agh call, which sounds like a high pitched laugh “ha… ha… ha…”.

Here is a video of the laughing gull with its laughing call.
