Description from Wikipedia

Gulls or seagulls are seabirds of the family Laridae in the sub-order Lari.

Until the twenty-first century most gulls were placed in the genus Larus, but this arrangement is now known to be polyphyletic, leading to the resurrection of several genera. An older name for gulls is mew, cognate with German "Möwe", Dutch...
