Seagulls for Low Tide


The ubiquitous seagull is often overlooked, but I've gained a new appreciation for this bird. Pairs of glaucous-winged gulls nest and raise their young on the rooftops around Vancouver. They appear to be excellent parents, bringing a constant supply of fish to their young.


As of yesterday, there are two eggs in the nest. They usually lay three. I'll check back later to see if there's a third one.

'Low Tide' wouldn't be complete without a seagull or two.
