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.

Stop or I’ll Jump

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!


Watching

Bald Eagles on the top of a communications tower at the end of White Rock pier.  I’m told there are a large number of Eagles this year because of the size of the Salmon runs.  To me it appears these guys were keeping an eye on the Gulls as there were quite a number on the jetty right below them.
