The Seagull is a critter that spawns in the Ocean. Unlike Birds, it will not fly away when a player approaches. It will occasionally make typical seagull sounds, walk passively on land and swim on water until they fall a certain distance or are approached while swimming, at which point they will switch to their alternative flying form. In their flying form, they will fly in a given direction for a certain amount of time before landing and switching back to their passive form. Despite their spawn conditions, they do not prioritize water whenever landing.

Seagull has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Seagull can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Seagull Cage). Once crafted, the Seagull cannot be released again.

Seagull can be spawned by the Seagull Statue, however statue-spawned critters cannot be caught with any Bug Net, and will disappear in a puff of smoke when the player attempts to do so.
