A common breeder in Michigan, they can be easily found in evey park, parking lot and golf course looking for hand-out. Be warned they don't take no for an answer, but it is a fine, locally, to feed the waterfowl.

It is said if you see a gull in Iowa, most likely it is the Ring-billed Gull. They will be seen in parking lots around fast food places, but also out in the country following tractors in the spring as the farmers till up the soil. The biggest numbers seen are at large sources of water where they eat fish and whatever else appeals to a gull.

They do not breed in Iowa, but will be seen during migration and possibly winter, as long as there is open water.
