and i like the next one for the song :P



i don't know why they do this!! i saw a comment that said it has something to do with how worms come out of the ground when it's raining, so the tapping makes it SOUND like it's raining, making it easier for the gulls to find food. it makes sense, but i'm not sure how legit that is! if you know, pray tell :)
