This bird is one smart cookie, he figured out to train humans to dispense food on command. Actually, the truth is us humans think the bird is being clever – but the buddy seagull knows this as one of the oldest tricks in the book… for earthworms that is.
You see this little ritual emulates the pitter-patter of rain drops, causing the unsuspecting earthworms to surface as food. And that’s why the buddy seagull refuses to do join in, he didn’t want to disrespect the human, under the assumption this was a widely known fact. Unfortunately he is too smart for his own britches, and misses out on free food (except for that one sneaky bite he stole).
