May 6th, 2016 – Avian Friday: Western Gull
Some of the more common birds are easy to take for granted or pass off as being not very interesting. Sea Gulls here in the Pacific Northwest are no exception, but if you take closer look at them you might notice some of the differences in the numerous species. A couple of the most common around the Seattle waterfront are the Western and Herring Gulls. I was out this weekend testing out a new lens and this guy was kind enough to provide a couple of poses.
