Laughing Gulls - Leucophaeus atricilla by 

These gulls are crisply marked and sound like they are hysterically laughing when they call. Since this is a composite image, I’ll give you a web site to visit for natural history and ID information.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    lol. they are so cute! I love the little palmed feet ;)

  • They were courting and he was dancing for her. Then he’d throw his head back and call, then dance. It was hysterical to watch. Thank you for the nice comment and for liking my gulls:>)

    Love it … especially the interaction you have captured in the top shot ! We cruised up the East Coast Inland Waterway a few years ago, often followed by numerous Laughing Gulls … laughing constantly at my attempts to capture a shot or two ☺ ☺

  • LOL:>) Thank you ever so much for the visit, the wonderful comment, and for making this a favorite!
