“Dad! Look. Seagulls,” Matt yelled as they rounded the corner.

“There is no such thing as Seagulls.”

“They’re right there,” Matt pointed at the birds perched on the pier.

“Son, those are Gulls. Most likely the Western Gull or perhaps a Glaucous-winged Gull, but I doubt we are in their territory.”

Matt’s eyebrows scrunched together as he looked at his father.
