First, the best I’ve got is a Laughing Gull. In summer they have a black head, winter they look like this. Except this was taken third week of September. Gulls don’t use calendars so maybe he was a little early.
The one above has a shrimp, or parts there of.
These were taken on a high wooden overlook making the angle a bit interesting. There was a steep bank down to the shoreline here.
It was high enough for the following shots to be at a downward angle. You don’t get to shot Gulls this way often.
Coastal waters, even rivers, here are filled with shrimp giving us a large number of feeding birds at any one time. If you can spot one or two birds fishing chances are there is a good photo op nearby.
