Gull Connecticut River

The Often Maligned New England Gull

 

Around here we don’t even see them any more. They are here, but we look through them.

When a large bird flies over we all look up fast, then…..”It’s just a Seagull” and move on.  What type of gull? Most of us don’t really know.

They really are incredible birds. Acrobats of the bird world. Throw some food in the air and it will never hit the ground. The food will likely be grabbed by several gulls before it’s eaten. They are fast, loud, and entertaining.

I went out several times in the last week and all I found were some gulls. I watched them, and now I’m going to pay more attention to them.
