I have been slightly terrified of gulls and some other birds after watching Hitchcock’s The Birds (many many times, what can I say it’s a classic!) so when we were touring lighthouses in Maine there they were and some of them were huge!  But this one was a different color than all the others I’ve ever seen.  He was brown and white, as you can see in the smaller photo.  So is this a different kind of gull or a different seabird?

Whatever it is that beak looks like it can inflict some serious damage.

    We have lots of crows out here, and even seagulls at times flying up and down the Rio Grande Valley. But “The Birds” definitely makes one have more respect for birds if not out right fear of them.

    Beautiful capture! Birds scare the crap out of me too, not sure why, but I avoid them if I can…

      Wonder why too but there’s something about them that sometimes gives me the willies!

    You’ve got to meet my Lucy. Sure, she may take a chunk out of your finger but once you get passed that, you’ll find her to be a charming pet.
