256Days #110 Western Gull

Western Gull

This Western Gull spent many hours on the rails of our deck. It stayed close to the window and watched us. When I went out with my camera it basically ignored the intrusion. I guess the quiet sounds of the camera clicks intrigued him more than it frightened. She let me get very close as the sun was low on the horizon. The intensity of the low light made her feathers nearly glow. I have no idea whether this bird is a male or a female but from the colors of the feathers it is a breeding adult.

Soon the gull left to settle in for the night and last I saw it, the gull was in flight.

One solitary gull in the late sunset, the sun was down as the dark crept in.

The End of our first day.

Good Night,

    I know a lot of people don’t like seagull, but I think they’re beautiful birds. That’s a gorgeous closeup.

      Thank you. There was an article in the paper yesterday that seagulls are perfect companions for humans. They do not kill or rob fruit or berries from the trees or bushes. They only clean up the mess left by humans. In addition to their clean white feathers, with a 52″ wingspan they are impressive and watching the fly and soar is awesome.
