The Gulls Love Wrigley Field for a Whole Other Reason
The Chicago Cubs are hot and everybody seems to love them, even the gulls.
But the birds have a whole other reason as to why they love the Cubs, the fans and Wrigley Field.
Wrigley Field may be "the friendly confines", but the gulls like it not because of it's friendly but because the food.
Have you ever noticed when either at a game or watching it on TV that around 4 or 5 pm there seems to be a lot of gulls flying around the field?
Well it isn't a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", but according to DNA Info, the "gulls [are] in search of food and on their way home to Lake Michigan [during that time] and [like to] frequent the North Side ballpark from time to time."
Doing fly-byes around Wrigley between 4pm - 6pm ," the prime time for feeding gulls as they head back toward Lake Michigan for the night, [which] is usually around the end of afternoon Cubs games", is like finding a treasure trove full of hot dog bits, peanuts, popcorn, cracker jacks and nachos crumbs.
Sometimes there's almost been near collisions between the ball players and the gulls. Watch the video below.
