Shore Birds - NBCB Part 3

These are the last of the photos from New Buffalo City Beach. There are a lot of photos in this set, even with me ruthlessly cutting out photos I wanted to share. They all can't make this entry though. You guys would be wading through the photos forever. *grin* Since there are so many, I am going to hush up now and just add some captions. Enjoy!

This was such a cute pose I couldn't resist keeping this one in the blog post.

Splashing around

Mixed group of adults in various cycles of feathering. Both Herring and Ring-billed Gulls are shown.

"Listen Up! I've got something to say."

"Are you listening to me?"

"Mine? Mine! Mine!" (Finding Nemo reference)

Great photos but I also love your captions.

Beautiful photos Jessica. What I find most stunning about seagulls is how extremely white their feathers are up close. They're just brilliant.
