A Glaucous-winged Gull (Larus glaucescens) surveying all it sees on it’s favourite perch, a old stump, in Mill Lake.
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.
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.
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!

Standing beside the tracks, I guess this guy’s waiting for the train!
This immature Herring Gull seems to be defying the waves from coming in
While on the beach at White Rock yesterday, I was taking pictures of everything I could see with wings! Lots of Gulls of course.
Wading in from the deep end, this Ring-billed Gull had a serious gleam in it’s eye, and frown on it’s face. Not wanting a confrontation with this chap/chappie, I moved along! (hee, hee, not really). But, it definitely had that look!
