  1. What a cool looking bird. In your first few shots, I thought it was a hawk or some other kind of raptor. Most of our gulls are a nondescript white in color and are much less interesting to photograph.

  2. Lovely shots.
    They remind me of our juvenile Pacific Gulls. I always find it surprising that the juveniles are so dark in comparison to the white/light coloured adults. One could almost think they were another bird species altogether.
