Especially towards each other, like in the following situation. What appeared to be one gull capturing a small bit of grass or something in its beak led to some escalation. Another gull apparently tried to take that away, as other birds cheered (or acted as referees). It was hard to tell what was really going on, as I am not much of an ornithologist. Still, interesting to observe…
I missed most of the daylight today, as I remained busy in my working world for many hours. I heard mutters about protests and helicopters in the distance, and that was enough connection to the outside. There was nothing left in the end for me, but cold and quiet with the sun far gone.
On the way home, I walked a long nightly detour by the waterfront. Then suddenly on the over and up, many sea gulls circled about. Not sure what, but something got them riled. The light from the pier below lit their little flapping bodies, and I tried for a shot. Not quite what I wanted, but this is my first nightly bird swarm shot. I think it’s still worth a share.
Also, it brings to mind the X-Files theme. I miss that show..
