Dietary analyses.--Laughing gulls (n = 1053) were collected at JFKIA as a stratified random sample (i.e., every fifth gull shot was collected) from laughing gulls shot by professional biologists using 12-gauge shotguns from 19 May 2003 to 5 Sep.
For example, Japanese beetles and other beetles are associated with areas of managed cool-season turfgrass (Potter and Held, 2002; Hamilton et al., 2007), suggesting that laughing gulls likely were foraging in parks, residential lawns or potentially on the JFKIA airfield.
Similarly, scarab beetles (Scarabidae) and ground beetles (Carabidae) were consumed by laughing gulls presumably foraging in grassland areas at JFKIA (Buckley and McCarthy, 1994).
