The young Great Black-backed Gull (Larus marinus) is the largest member of the gull fam-ily. It breeds on the European and North American coasts and islands of the North Atlantic and is fairly sedentary, though some Black-backs move farther south or inland to large lakes or reservoirs. The standard measurements are as follows: the bill is 5.4 to 7.25 cm (2.1 to 2.85 in), the wing chord is 44.5 to 53 cm (17.5 to 21 in) and the tarsus is 6.6 to 8.8 cm (2.6 to 3.5 in).
