Seagulls



They are so funny to watch, and cooperate so willingly. These photos were taken in the Isle of Skye two years ago and make my contribution to World Bird Wednesday

Aren't their feet just too strange? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

I love these things even thought they are pesky and messy and a pain in the rear (especially if you're trying to eat peanuts on a pier)!

It does look like this one was posing for you. Nice photos!

I like the one with the house in the background :-)

Ale pozuje, do nas przylatują znad morza i czekają na jedzonko, ludzie zimą je dokarmiają, zwłaszcza jak morze jest zamarznięte.
Pozdrawiam.

I always enjoy watching the gulls. I think their feet are cute. Wonderful photos, I also love the scenery in the background!

Gulls can be quite entertaining when we watch them interact.

They are very different to our local sea gulls.

Larry said...

Great shots of the gulls Joo. I love them but find them to be quite a challenge to ID sometimes with so many varied plumages.

oh lovely; I've never seen anything other than a pure white seagull ever.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - Skye is a wonderful place - and the gulls are nice too. We only have one common species in Australia - lots more around the coast of Scotland.

Cheers - Stewart M

These gulls are so different from the ones I see here ... these guys have webbed feet (ours do not). Love their feet!

Kim, USA said...

Yay you are close to these pretty birds. How you get close to them. Love your shots!

heyBJK said...

Fantastic shots, Joo! I really like the third one!

Alan said...

Great close-up photos Joo! The seagull looks very friendly.

Hope you have a good weekend!

Sea gulls are fun worldwide! I like the colours of this variety.

Jean said...

Joo, They do have strange feet. I miss seeing Gulls now that I live inland.
Enjoyable pics!

They seemed to like to balance on one foot although the last one in your photo displays his feet proudly.
