A man waded into the sea to rescue a seagull which was struggling piteously in the waters and seemed tied to the spot. The bird was in such bad shape that these passing boaters knew they had to intervene.

While sailing in Croatia a group saw a seagull struggling in the water and decided to turn their boat around and rescue it. They approached it and tried to grab it by the belly and pick it up from the water. This may be the luckiest bird in the world enjoying a red-carpet treatment!

These Good Samaritans were very kind and offered food and water to the bird. Watch as the seagull feasts on the goodies and enjoys the company of his humans. Never seen a bird eating with such delight. Adorable!

It is amazing how this seagull allowed the human to have him picked up and welcomed on board. The gull seems to be very friendly, seeking human attention. This fortunate bird was given the royal treatment and was hopefully released into the sea soon after. Maybe the seagull was lonely and wanted to befriend a human. Who knows..

Gulls or seagulls are seabirds that are typically medium to large, usually grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They have harsh wailing or squawking calls, stout, longish bills, and webbed feet. Most gulls are ground-nesting carnivores, which take live food or scavenge opportunistically. Live food often includes crabs and small fish. Gulls have unhinging jaws which allow them to consume large prey. Gulls are typically coastal or inland species, rarely venturing far out to sea. The large species take up to four years to attain full adult plumage, but two years is typical for small gulls. Large white-headed gulls are typically long-lived birds, with a maximum age of 49 years recorded for the herring gull.
