Closeup of Herring Gull
Not all gulls are rowdy and pests, but this species sure can be! It's one of the two species most commonly seen in the Great Lakes area. I recognize them by their size (they are BIG gulls), their pink legs and feet and the red dot on their lower bill.
A week or so ago, two herring gulls were hanging out with some Canada Geese and Mallards at the entrance to the harbour at Bond Head. Although they are BIG for gulls they are much smaller than the mallards and geese. Someone was feeding seeds to the birds and the geese weren't letting the greedy gulls anywhere near the seeds until they were finished.
The gulls kept trying though! They are very persistent and finally got to eat too.
