A small group of Gulls found this puddle in a vacant lot in Abbotsford, B.C. to be quite to their liking. They became alert and stopped bathing when we pulled up.


Standing Proud

A proud Mew Gull (larus canus) standing on the sand at White Rock while the tide is out. I believe this to be an adult Nonbreeding bird.


Gull Time

The golden hour just before the sun sinks below the horizon makes for nice light. It also seems to bring out a final flury of Gulls over the water. Maybe looking for that last bit of food before dark. The skies were quite dramatic.

This rather brave Gull let this lady walk right up to it. When she got there, I think it changed it’s mind. My Gull identification skills are sadly lacking, so I won’t try. Everybody will be saying, “Oh, That’s a Blah, Blah, Blah! Hope you do, then I’ll know!
