Why do you think there are suddenly yellow seagulls around Invercargill?
If you have an idea then let us know and we'll share it with all of our readers.

First there were swastika
branded mollymawks. Now
there are yellow seagulls.
Several yellow gulls have been
spotted in various locations
across Invercargill in the past
couple of weeks, and have
people questioning what has
happened to the birds.
One of the brightly coloured
gulls made an appearance at
Newfield Park School and left
two young pupils wondering
why the usually white and grey
birds looked as though they
have been coloured in by a
Newfield Park School pupil
Sean Barrett, 7, wrote a letter
and drew a picture of bird to
send to naturalist Lloyd Esler,
asking why is was yellow and
what could have happened to it.
Sean has his theories about why
it is yellow, but hoped Mr Esler
would be able to give him a
more definite answer.
''It could have flown too close to
the sun. It could be the sunshine
that makes it yellow,'' the boy
Mr Esler has different ideas
about why the bird is yellow,
but even with the descriptive
drawing and a photo, he was left
He believes it could be part of a
study or someone was having a
bit of fun.
The bird that the school
children had spotted was a
three-month-old red-billed gull,
and it is not the only yellow gull.
Another was seen at the
Southland Museum, which is
clearly different, he said.
Southland Museum and Art
Gallery curator Lindsay Hazley
said the bird had been popular
with visitors and was quite a
But the yellow seagulls have not
been seen at the museum for
several days now and that was
probably due to its unusual
looks, Mr Hazley said.
''The poor yellow seagull has
probably gone and committed
suicide because of rejection,'' he
The colour could well affect the
seagull's ability to mate because
other birds may or may not be
attracted to it. ''They'll be
having a lot of sex, or none.''
Mr Hazley suspects someone
has tampered with the birds, but
he said it was not the first time a
bird in Southland has been
given a makeover.
In the past someone has painted
swastikas on mollymawks in
Fiordland, he said.
Department of Conservation
biodiversity ranger Collin
Bishop said the yellow bird was
news to him.
He suspected someone had
spray painted it.
