If you are at a beach with some snacks to enjoy yourself, there is a high chance that seagulls might snatch your food. But there is a way to save your food. But don’t kill the seagulls we have some other ways to drive them off.
Seagulls have a reputation (we don’t know if it is good or bad among the people!) to snatch the food. Actually the thing is that they love your beach food. What they do is that they just fly on the sky searching for people who are not suspecting them about stealing the food. When thy find out such a person, they just fly down to them and snatch their food. Well, you can consider it as a prize for not suspecting a thief! They even do it on the boardwalks near the sea beach as well.
How To Defeat These Thief Seagulls
The beach lovers across the globe have reportedly been irritated with the snatching behaviors of the seagulls. After long research, the ornithologists have found out a hack to save your food from the seagulls. However, the solution provided by scientists is quite simple. They have said that the seagulls cannot tolerate that you are staring at them. When you will be staring at them on a continuous basis, they would fly away from you to find other prey.
This research was done by a group of scientists. They visited the coastal towns in Cornwall for studying the seagulls. In the target city, approximately hundreds of seagulls were studied carefully. They had tempted the birds with the bags of food. There were fried potatoes in the bags. Though most of the seagulls did not care about the food. But the rest of them made the sudden snatching thing that was reported previously by the tourists.
The scientists explained the reason behind the ignorance though. They have said that the experiment was done in urban areas. And the birds were scared of the dogs and the local peoples. That is why they were not daring to jump and snatch the food.
A funny But Effective Suggestion
If you are a tourist then you might be annoyed at this solution. You may raise a question that if you would be looking at the seagulls continuously, then when you would enjoy the beauty of the beach? Well, in this situation, we have got you covered. So, design a cap of your own. The head part of the cap has to be designed for a person’s face. The face should look like if it is watching towards the sky continuously. If the drawing is good, the seagulls can be fooled easily. They cannot get the difference between a drawn face and a real face. So, they would think that you are staring at them continuously while you are actually enjoying the beauty of the area. Thus, you can save your beach snacks and can enjoy your vacation at ease.
