World Bird Wednesday - Silver Gulls

These Silver Gulls seemed very interested in out sandwiches last weekend. But like all opportunists, they could not help but keep an eye open for other sources of food!

These are our most common gull in Australia – they are the typical chip stealers that we know and love!




You can find more birds from around the world at World Bird Wednesday.



You can also see the most recent post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention picture on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the birds.

Great photos, Stewart! I really like the color in their legs and feet!

Dave said...

I will swap you 1 silver Gull for 100 herring Gulls....lol

Those legs and feet are eye catching.

Seriously though I think Gulls make the most amazing images, they always seem to be very photogenic

They're prettier than the gulls on the Oregon Coast, with those lovely red legs -- but sounds like they share all the personality traits.

What clowns! Those poses seemed rehearsed, like a vaudeville act. Too funny.
Cheers to you Stewart!

They are adorable and so funny! I loved seeing those red legged gulls in Australia; they look like they are wearing lipstick and red tights :-))

mick said...

Nice photos! They bring back memories of summer and salt air and - yes! - chips!

Larry said...

Yea, come on Stewart, admit it. You trained those gulls to pose like that didn't you?

What a great series!

They're a cheery lot, aren't they...? Somehow they always seem that way to me...

At Victor Harbour they are literally 'in your face' and steal your food as you are about to put it into your mouth! No wonder they have signs urging people not to feed the beggars.

Great shots Stewart!!
I love the way the Silver Gulls pose for the camera!!! I have some wonderful shots from a recent visit to Brisbane Southbank & more from a visit to Redcliffe.
Chip stealer's is right!! As soon as they think you may have food it's like an invasion!!!
Looking forward to your shots of the Peninsula! :)

Hilke Breder said...

Such showmen! They know that the silver/red combination is spectacular. Nice post, Stewart!

Pat Ulrich said...

Cool shots of the gulls -- looks like they are in the perfect place to keep an eye on the entire beach!

There are hardly any seagulls in Brazil. Congratulations for the beautiful pictures and thank you for visiting.
I love gulls too.

Love these! The gulls look like they are posing for you. I love the striking red of their feet and legs against the white of their feathers.

Anna said...

Gotta love a cooperative bird! Or two!
