With glittering eye
he seeks rations from tourists
to rearm his troops
He looks more “tawney” than his cousins out West — and not quite as greedy!
I think the tawniness was mainly due to the late-afternoon sun. However, he and his pals definitely seemed less food-seeking than the ones I’ve encountered in the Seattle area; ever tried sitting outside at Ivars with a basket of french fries and clams? Sharks have nothing on that feeding frenzy! These were content to mostly wheel around and people-watch.
I think they are on the menu at Rhode Island restaurant — aka, “chicken”.
Would that be “Chicken of the Sea?”
our national bird
gone from eagle to seagull
gimme a handout
I think he looks pretty regal. Great photo!
I still laugh at that animated movie Nemo, where the seagulls cry was “mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!.
Great photo and sentiment.
Ha ha! Reminds me of the seagulls and crows near our Wendy’s in Chehalis.
I was in the parking lot eating a cheeseburger and fries and one crow was cryin’ for a handout. I threw out one fry and a flock of seagulls and crows land, surrounding the car.
It was like a scene out of The Birds.
