Enjoying the Sun

Southern Vancouver Island River

There was a short break in the weather, the sun came out and this gull stood on the stump soaking up as much of it as it could. Herring Gull facts: Herring gulls are omnivores (eats both plants and animals and in the case of these gulls anything they can scavenge), although food from the sea is their main diet, especially during the breeding season. One trick they have is to drop molluscs and crabs from a height to break their shells on the rocks.
