This week I dove into my archives and found an image I hadn’t worked on and thought I’d see what I could come up with. And no, I did not dive in the pike position. :P
My husband and I were walking along the beach at Half Moon Bay and we saw a flock of seagulls standing along the shoreline. They were perfectly content to stand there as we walked by, but I really wanted the birds in flight, so my husband gave them a mean look……….just kidding! LOL. My husband actually jogged through the flock so they would take off in flight and I fired off a few shots. We were just helping them work off their breakfast. :)
I’ve seen these gulls all my life but I’m not exactly sure what constitutes the darker-color except they could be younger. I know the adults have the whiter face, neck and breast, but I’m honestly not quite sure whether these are a totally different type of gull. If there are any birders out there in Word Press Land who could give me a positive identification, that’s be great!
