Thieving gulls try to steal pelican's meal

Everyone likes to eat in peace.  Even brown pelicans.  But gulls make that difficult.  

When a gull notices a brown pelican diving for fish, it swoops down in an attempt to steal the fish away from the larger bird before the pelican can swallow it. Sometimes a gull will even land on the pelican's head - like it does in the following two videos - in order to get closer to a potential meal.
