Family LARIDAE

Family LARIDAE.

Lowe keeps the Gulls, Terns and Skimmers in three separate-families and I follow him in this in conformity with his general classification of this Order. The three families, however, are very close and Blanford's division of the one family, Laridae, into three subfamilies seems to be equally scientific and sound. In all three families there is no cere to the bill in any of our Indian representatives, the caeca are small and functionless and the sternum has two notches on each side of the posterior margin.
