Argen the Gull is a novel by Franklin Russell, published by Knopf in 1964.[1] It is about "one particular Larus argentatus, or herring gull, and produced an odd, passionate saga of its free life and very hard times. Russell scrutinizes "Argen's" bird life from egg to watery grave 20 years later, an exceptionally long life span as calamity-prone gulls go. He shows Argen in the flock and drifting solo, molting and mating, gorging and regurgitating, rising and falling in the pecking order.[2]
