Ring-Billed Seagull. by William Brennan

Adults are 49 cm (19 in) length and with a 124 cm (49 in) wingspan. The head, neck and underparts are white; the relatively short bill is yellow with a dark ring; the back and wings are silver gray; and the legs are yellow. The eyes are yellow with red rims. This gull takes three years to reach its breeding plumage; its appearance changes with each fall moult. I went for a walk on the boardwalk in Atlantic City when I noticed this guy giving me the eye. I was taking a break from gambling.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

    Nice portrait! This species of bird are beautiful, but they are unattractive in their mannerisms and scavenger habits. I have been literally swarmed by them before… in the city far far from water. I read your story about them in your other picture… and it is a bit sad about what humans have turned them into. Love the portrait though!

  • I personally call them “rats with wings” but they are attractive birds and make for nice pictures. This guy was just hanging out.:)
