Seagulls are recurring creatures in the Legend of Zelda series. In most of their appearances, they serve no special purpose other than helping to create mood and ambiance.

Appearances

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Seagulls are an object of fascination for Marin. She relates to Link how she dreams of becoming a seagull and fly away from Koholint Island. If Link manages to complete the game without dying, Marin will be shown flying across the screen with wings in the "The End" screen. This may be an indication that she fulfilled that dream.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

"Hey, what do you think that is? Out there in the bay, beneath where the gulls are flying..."
Tatl

Seagulls native to Termina appear in the Great Bay region. A flock of gulls can be seen flying over the dying Mikau when Link first enters the Great Bay Coast. Tatl will point this out, thus the gulls serve as a clue that leads Link to Mikau and ultimately the Zora Mask.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Seagulls, which can be found almost everywhere on the Great Sea, can be controlled if they take one of Link's Hyoi Pears for a while. Link can use a seagull to collect far off or out-of-reach Rupees or to hit switches. If the controlled seagull is hit by an enemy, Link loses control of it. When they are found while sailing, they will follow Link's boat. Seagulls are also known to gather in flocks on the Great Sea near Big Octos. Seagulls also tend to flock around Aryll, Link's sister.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Seagulls will fly alongside the S.S. Linebeck and can be shot with Link's cannon. The only result of this is that the seagull will fall back a few feet from the ship until it recovers.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

Seagulls will fly alongside the Spirit Train in the Ocean Realm, while doves, who behave very similarly to seagulls, appear in most other areas.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

"These birds live near the ocean. They eat mainly fish, so a flock of seagulls hovering over water is a good indication of where there are fish. Fishermen use this to their advantage when searching for a catch of their own."
— In-game description

Seagulls can be found along every coast throughout Hyrule. Faron Sea, Necluda Sea, Lanayru Sea, and Akkala Sea's beaches will usually have a few seagulls flying overhead, and big flocks of them usually means there are fish nearby. They drop a Raw Bird Drumstick when killed.
