    I grew up with farm folk that could strip/clean/cook anything.
    Not sure if they would eat a gull or not.

    This.

    As a kid I spent a lot of time on the ocean boating and fishing. Most of the old captains we went out with would say the same thing. If I ever got stranded at sea I'd do everything I could to catch a fish before I even thought about trying to get a gull.

    I've seen the garbage those things eat. If I were to ever consider eating one in a survival situation it would be a last, last, last resort.

    That said, If you were able to prepare one properly (deep fried) it probably wouldn't be too awful.
    Well the sheriff couldn't catch me now, but his little girl? Sure wish she would.

    I'm pretty sure this was meant in jest, but for those who may not already know it, all birds of prey in the U.S., including all species of seagull, are protected.
    That also includes vultures (yeah, who would even consider it), hawks, eagles, owls, falcons, kites, and even storks, egrets, herons, and cranes.

    Yet it is common place for chickens to eat their own poop and anything else they can swallow. People still eat chicken without complaints. Catfish eat a lot of nasty crap too but they also have a strong fan base.

    The seagull is a bird of prey?

    Yes, it is classified as such, believe it or not.
    No, I'm not joking here.

    Reference here:
    Eddie Rickenbacker and Six Other People Survive a B-17 Crash and Three Weeks Lost in the Pacific Ocean

    " At that point it seemed they would need a miracle to save them. They held prayer meetings and sang hymns to keep their spirits up. On the eighth day, events took a dramatic turn. After the afternoon prayer service, Rickenbacker was lying on his back with his hat pulled down over his face when something landed on it — a sea gull. Rickenbacker slowly reached up, clamped his fingers around the gull's legs and held on tight, then wrung its neck and stripped its feathers. He carved it up, divided the meat into equal shares and kept the intestines for bait. It did not matter to the men that the meat was raw and tough and tasted fishy. They ate all of it, including the bones."
