World Bird Wednesday - Pacific Gulls
You should have been able to work out by now that I have a fondness for these gulls. These are Pacific Gulls, and as you can see they are huge.
For all their enormousness, they still seem to have a feeling of grace to them – that huge bill can slice through food like a knife through hot butter, but I’ve still seem them flick tiny shreds of seaweed off chunks of fish with the delicacy of a surgeon.
For those of you who like fact and figures here are some: They can grow to by 67 cm in length, have a wingspan of 169 cm and males can weigh in at 1.6 kg – this can be summed up in a very simple way “they’re big”.
You will be able to find more birds at World Bird Wednesday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the birds.
PS: this is the 200th post to my photo-blog!
