Seagull are recurring Animals in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] They are the most common inhabitants of sea-faring locations and fly in flocks wherever they are found.

Characteristics

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening DX, Marin transforms into a Seagull during the ending scene of the game if it is completed without dying once.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Seagulls tend to flock around or above areas of significance, such as when Mikau is floating in the Great Bay near death.

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, Seagulls tend to flock near areas of significance, such as above Big Octos. At the Forsaken Fortress, several Seagulls circle around the window of the room in which Aryll is being held captive. A small flock of Seagulls often fly alongside the King of Red Lions if Link has been sailing for an extended period of time.

Link can control Seagulls by using a Hyoi Pear and, subsequently, can fly as the Seagull itself. In order to obtain a Piece of Heart on Bird's Peak Rock, this must be used to activate several Switches located upon the spire peaks of the island, all of which are located at points only a Seagull can reach. Link can control one Seagull at a time and once he stops controlling the Seagull, he must use another Hyoi Pear in order to control another one. Items collected by the Seagull are brought to Link after he ceases controlling it. If an enemy attacks the Seagull, control will return to Link.

Birthplace: Unknown
Talent: Flying

Seagulls soar freely over the Great Sea. They love Hyoi Pears above all other foods, and eating them simply steals their hearts.

Phantom Hourglass

In Phantom Hourglass, Seagulls can be found throughout the World of the Ocean King. Link can shoot Seagulls with the Cannon on the S.S. Linebeck.

Description
These birds live near the ocean. They eat mainly fish, so a flock of seagulls hovering over water is a good indication of where there are fish. Fishermen use this to their advantage when searching for a catch of their own.
Common Locations
Necluda Sea
Akkala Sea
Recoverable Materials
Raw Bird Drumstick

In Breath of the Wild, Seagulls can often be found flying over the Necluda Sea and the Akkala Sea. They usually fly above Treasure Chests found under water. Seagulls drop Raw Bird Drumsticks upon death.
