Oh, so that’s why they’re called Herring Gulls

Horkin’ down the herring on State Fish Pier in Gloucester after an accidental spill.

Wow. I've learned more about gulls visiting you!

Wow, just amazing. The last shot is my favorite. It sure does have a mouth full.

Steve, great shots! Bet it didn't take them long to swoop into that Bonanza!

Chris said...

Wow I guess they could easily eat the whole container! Great shots Steve!

Fabulous shots all. The third is amazing but I think I like the second the best. Being able to capture that bird among all those wings could not have been easy and I can almost hear what it is thinking.

Good example of being in the right place at the right time and on top of your game.

The third one is OUTSTANDING! One of the best gull shots I've ever seen, no question.

Great photos. I bet that was a noisy scene.

Looks like there is enough to feed all five thousand of them!
