Why don't you ever see baby sea gulls? Where do they lay their eggs?

Sea gulls have their nests in remote places where most people would not ever visit. Hence, you would not see them. However, the young grow quickly to adult size before they leave the nest and are brown and white for their first few years for most species. There are numerous gull species! Check out a bird idenfication book to see the young and adult relationships.
