Birds Galore

 This flock of Gulls, about 90 of them with sitting in the field until we drove up, then they took off. Also on the field were a bunch of ducks. Find the Mallards here! Also in the trees there’s about 35 crows and over the other way a Bald Eagle. So it was productive!


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 guy didn’t fly, even though I was only about two feet away, but it would accept my gift of an apple core! Hmm!  I thought they ate everything!

Blkheadedgull

Reported in The Sibley Field Guide to Birds as “Very Rare”  is a Black-headed Gull.  We managed to see two separate flocks of these birds on our trip across Alberta and Saskatchewan.  This is a lifer for me!
