Male seagulls have an unusual way of signaling they’re ready to mate; standing on the back of the female. Most male birds don’t have penises. Both females and males have an opening called a cloaca. They rub them together, and males transfer their sperm to the female. Seagulls are monogamous and will mate several times during one season.
