Pin It

On our walk to the beach yesterday, we decided to stroll along the harbor pier to see what was happening. Lots of fishing boats were coming in with lots of fish: salmon, ling cod, sand dabs and another smaller fish I couldn't identify. The gulls were all lined up waiting for a snack to come their way. This one evidently thought I was a likely food source. He never flinched when I got close with the camera. Lest anyone is worried, the red dot on its beak is a normal coloring, not blood. Click on the photo to enlarge. For even more detail, mouse over the lower right-hand corner until an orange box appears then click on that box.

Very cool! I admire these brave birds that approach the humans and aren't afraid. ;-)

Yes, it's a lot of fun for us folks who appreciate being able to see them up close. Not to put a downer on the subject, but it's a double-edged sword in that there are some people who will and have done them harm by being able to get so close.
