A Bag of Bird Portraits © National Geographic Society Kodachrome by Arthur A. Allen "How About Eggs for Breakfast? Let's Rob a Neighbor's Nest" When sea food and refuse are scarce, Western Gulls ravage the nests of sea birds, devouring eggs and young. These large Gulls are seen everywhere along the California coast, where they haunt rocky shores, breaking reefs, and harbors. This pair is perched on a headland above the surf at Monterey.
