I visited Eastern Point during the low tide. Braving the bitter winds to take some photos at sundown, I saw this Herring Gull hunting back and forth along the low tide line and suddenly swoop down.
He found a red crab and picked it up. I’ve seen gulls take crabs before, they shake them apart and get at the goodies inside.
This gull flew around and landed about 20 yards from me on the Dog Bar Breakwater. He abandoned the crab. I went over and picked up the crab. He was missing some legs. One claw was in tact the other fractured. He seemed to still be alive so I tossed him back into the water. Good luck little dude.
