Perhaps.  And this guy was missing a foot.  Maybe difficult to tell in this photo, but he was hopping around and seemed ok.  Wonder how they lose a foot.  We’ve seen this before.  Does it get trapped in something?  How horrid.  Probably doesn’t affect flying, and he was with the group on the beach, so it seems he manages ok.  And it’s doubtful the other birds tease him.  Or that he has self-image issues!

Now, why did I assume he is a ‘he?’  I know nothing about bird coloring, so it isn’t that.  Hm…(him…?)

  1. I have been told seagulls can get a leg tangled in lost fishing line and lose a foot. Hence the signs on the piers for those fishing to recover discarded line.

  2. I’m wondering if it’s only us humans that tease other humans. Perhaps in the animal, bird, and fish worlds, they have more important things to do, like perhaps just being and loving. I’d like to think so anyway.
