These are wild birds hanging around the open exhibit areas at SeaWorld San Diego waiting to skim food from the resident animals. Some of them can be extremely bold. In a previous visit, I've had a gull swoop down and rip the sausage off my hot dog during lunch...

Haha, what a suggestion. I wished someone took a photo of the incident.
