Returning With Food | Herring Gull | Maine
Herring Gulls are large but not the biggest of gulls.
They are still impressive birds.
Large white bodies. Black wing tips. Bright colored beaks, often with a spot of color on them.
Herring Gulls seem to be less afraid than other birds.
The Herring Gull will get close to you and allow you to get close to them.
It is fun to see these birds interact with their natural environment.
This Herring Gull is flying back in for a landing with some food it has scavenged from off the coast.
