recently was on a beach with a bunch of kids and brought a
dozen donuts for them to snack on. Unfortunately there
were no takers so I ended up breaking them into small
pieces and throwing them at a distance and watched the
seagulls rush to grab it. Then I started throwing the pieces
up in the
air and was amazed at the speed and accuracy of
their maneuvering in the air and fighting with other
seagulls; all for a piece of donut. Not a single piece of
donut fell on the ground but my arms started aching by
trying to throw the piece higher each time
Wish I had a nerf gun customized to load and shoot food
stuff instead of loading those foam darts...if its too windy
the pop corn you shoot in the air might end up in your
mouth...wait... seagulls are skillful enough to grab it
sooner than that

Here's what you need ....
And I'm sure there's a more appropriate category for your idea .... maybe hobby: feeding: sky rats ? [normzone, Oct 11 2017]
||Don't feed the shithawks!
||That said. I once spent a summer on a long line salmon fishing boat and the first mate and I were so stir-crazy but the end of three months at sea that the daily game became; store fish guts in one checker and fish heads in the other to see who could peg more seagulls than the other guy when the guts got tossed overboard.
||Although in my falconry fantasies (insufficient time and space for a mews) I have considered capturing a seagull and training it to steal sandwiches from children.
||Since they do that already anyway.

||Hey, that's pretty cool. You don't hear about people doing
adventure stuff like that much.
