This is an old post when we were near the ocean. I enjoy watching gulls every bit as much as I enjoy watching our own backyard birds at home. These flying acrobats are noisy, and can be aggressive if there is food around. I don't feed them for obvious reasons.All this aside, they are fun to observe, and so entertaining, comical. "When you are alone, bless the solitude; when you are with someone, bless the togetherness! Think of the seagull: It flies alone happily; it flies with another happily too! Solitude is a food; togetherness is a food; man needs both and he must be happy with both."

A PARADE OF GULLS
“As I watched the seagulls, I thought, That’s the road to take; find the absolute rhythm and follow it with absolute trust.”
~ Nikos Kazantzakis~
There are nails pounded into the posts to prevent birds from getting too comfortable, hoping they prevent them from landing no doubt. This one laughs and ignores them.
Yes, I am very fond of gulls, and just like the birds back home, they speak to me. I think the word has gotten round even this far south…and that blackbird at the bottom of the picture looks very familiar!
Nope! Sometimes you've got to say nope, for their sake and for ours. That’s life!
Thanks for flying in and enjoy the rest of your week.
