Never take a herring gull or any gull for granted. They are not only pretty but smart as well. If you stand on a wharf or shoreline or boat and make tossing motions, gulls get it right away and come looking for food. Gulls are almost always first to understand you could be tossing bread pieces, french fries or fish parts. Crows are a close second. When gulls swarm in for your cold potato chips, the crows, mergansers and various ducks also come in close. Most of my sea bird photos were won through the help of gulls and herring gulls primarily. Lovely portrait here. TG
