There are several species of gulls that inhabit the Arctic. Many are hard to differentiate, especially at the juvenile stage, and often have relatively similar habits. Several of them are associated in one main group although this group does not have a specific name. Two other species, however iqiggagiarjuk, Sabine's gull, and imiqqutailaq, the arctic tern, are distinct in their habits and are considered together, apart from the rest of the gulls.
