Western Gull Killing and Eating Canada Goose Chick (graphic), May 2012

“Much that is good and all that is evil has gathered itself up into the Western Gull. . . Cruel of beak and bottomless of maw . . . this gull asks only two questions of any other living thing: First, ‘Am I hungry?’ (Ans., ‘Yes.’) Second, ‘Can I get away with it?’ (Ans., ‘I’ll try.’)”

-W. L. Dawson, Birds of California (1923)
