Once they became comfortable with me, I was able to get real close!!!
There were a few confrontations between males who wanted to dominate and challenge eachother for top position. In one of these battles, a bird lost a feather or two to it's rival, who remained "king of the breadcrumbs".
In my observation of them, they were curious about me as well. The only time the seagulls flew away was when my adrenaline was strong,(they can sense it), they came back as it eased.
Hope to bring you many pictures of these fasinating feathered friends. :-}
