The flock approaches turning circles in the sky. With six foot wingspans these huge birds almost disappear and then reappear with their colors that blend with the sky. They land and work the bay together, an amazing sight to enjoy. The group moves in unison and soon dip their huge bills deep searching for fish they have corralled. They work as a pair sometimes, paired up for their lifetime, and it is like a ballet when watching these unique denizens of the waterways nearby.
Must be me and two little dogs agitating the beach.
Out across the water they soar
The gulls enjoy the leftovers, and perhaps the comfort of friends made while down on the Gulf Mexico.
I will be fishing behind this group over the weekend while camping.
I like the gull head with just tail feathers showing behind a wave.
These three all landed together, part of the ballet to be seen when the flock arrives and fishes together.
