Smeagull The Seagull

Smeagull Book Cover

 Smeagull is a wild herring gull and this is indeed a true story

Smeagull the Seagull comes to the house near the shore and knocks on the sliding glass door. He knocks when he’s hungry, and the people who live there feed him scraps (from sustainable fish, of course!). Smeagull rules the roost, and keeping up with his schedule is an exhausting job but when Smeagull disappears, it makes clear what an important family member Smeagull the Seagull has become.

      Hello Gina, Yes, Smeagull is a wild herring gull, of about 15 years of age (they live for 30 to 40 years) and he still visits for his snack! As I write this (July 6th, 2019, 7:19 AM) I can see him from my office window, sitting on the piling he particularly likes to use as a perch. Sorry for the late reply. My website was hacked – we just found out yesterday – and I’m still working on a fix. – Mark
