Nice shot. The background for your gulls is a lot nicer than the sand and muck and concrete I have around Chicago.

All those gulls like their saying - "where's mine I want my fish" and an Interesting difference between the call of a grey gull to the white nd grey versions.

Hi Steve, I certainly don't have this kind of background very often.

I miss seeing your shots from the lake. (hint, hint)

Looks to me like a Eurasian Oystercatcher. They have more white than the American ones.
