Chroicocephalus Links:Chroicocephalus - wikipedia
from site: Chroicocephalus is a genus of medium to relatively small gulls which were once included in the genus Larus. Some authorities also include the Saunders's Gull in Chroicocephalus. The name is derived from the Greek chroa (colour) and cephalus (head).
Chroicocephalus ridibundus Links:Black-headed gull - wikipedia
from site: The Black-headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) is a small gull which breeds in much of Europe and Asia, and also in coastal eastern Canada. Most of the population is migratory, wintering further south, but some birds in the milder westernmost areas of Europe are resident. Some birds will also spend the winter in northeastern North America, where it was formerly known as the Common Black-headed Gull. As is the case with many gulls, it had previously been placed in the genus Larus.

Laridae Links:Laridae - Wikipedia
from site: Gulls (often informally called seagulls) are birds in the family Laridae. They are most closely related to the terns (family Sternidae) and only distantly related to auks, skimmers, and more distantly to the waders. Until recently[vague], most gulls were placed in the genus Larus, but this arrangement is now known to be polyphyletic, leading to the resurrection of several genera.
Seagull facts and information.
from site: This site contains information and facts about and on seagulls that live in, or visit North America. Here you will find information and facts on where these seagulls live, their nesting habits, diet, and migration patterns. While the information and facts on seagulls that I have posted is not all-inclusive, I have done my best to list as much pertinent information and facts that I could find. My hope is that my site will make your reseach on seagulls much easier.
Reykjavik Links:Visit Reykjavik - Official Site
from site: It's been an exceptional time for tourism in Iceland, with annual estimated figures showing a about 20% increase in the number of visitors over the last few years, the majority of whom also visit Reykjavík. This increase, especially in the off-season, has been met with both enthusiasm and innovation in the city as local institutions and businesses come together to serve this growing sector and to create new and exciting ways to entertain and engage visitors to the city.
