Hi Audree,

Gulls migrate to the coast and some other isolated spots to breed. They nest on rocky coasts where they are out of reach of potential predators. They may also nest on the ground on remote islands where no predators exist. You can assume that wherever humans live, there are potential predators. Therefore unless you make a special visit to a colony of nesting gulls, you are unlikely to see any young.
