Roman seagulls are legendary birds, they are proudspirited, impudent and totally not afraid of anything - especially to take food from the hands.
Roman seagull is a landmark of Rome, like the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. In this city, this bird is especially arrogant and very bold. You can feed them, but beware, that one of these Italian beauties do not pecked you right in your hand.
You can find them on the coast of the Tiber River (down the stairs to the waterfront) or on any bridge parapets.
By the way, they like prosciutto more than ciabatta :)
