Wild Bird Wednesday: Silver Gull shenanigans

I love finding new birds to photograph but I also love photographing the common ordinary Silver Gull, with it's hot chip stealing reputation! I'm not sure what it is but these birds are quite the characters... and there were no hot chips in sight this warm Winter's day. Keep an eye on the one on the left... he/she is quite a character...

"Ah, that lady with the stalker lens is following us. Let's move..."

"I think we out ran her..."

"No, you guys! She's still coming!"

"Maybe I'll be safe over here?"

"Hmm... maybe if I ignore her, she'll go away?"

"I'm not sure this is working! What if I tip toe quietly?"

"Nope!! OK, lady...Got any chips?? Hmmm... didn't think so!!"
I think I've been given the seagull death stare!!

I love this one, the Silver Gulls, new to me. The last one is special. Cheers Liz.

That's my state bird. They seem to love french fries. But MOM never lets me feed them.
Blessings,

Hi there - if you meet the deadline, then you are not late!

I like gulls a great deal - even though I have heaps of shots of them, I cant resist taking a few more!

A lovely series of photos, especially that last one. I had no idea they were bold enough to steal chips. :)

A great series. I agree - gulls are fun to watch and photograph. I especially like the first photos with the beautiful reflections. btw - still no big flocks of migrating birds.
