Thank you to those who responded to my gull email.  Perhaps there was nothing unusual about the whole incident and I was merely being gull-ible.  I don't think, however, that we should label everything unusual that happens as a coincidence.  We should keep an open mind and not treat birds as purely physical robots without any mental or supersensory capabilities whatsoever, especially when we know that New Caledonian crows use and even construct tools and that pigeons can find their way home unerringly from hundreds of miles away.
