Wild Bird Wednesday - Heerman's Gulls

My favorite of the local gull species is the Heermann's Gull.  There's something so classic about their white heads, silvery gray bodies and lipstick red beaks.  Plus, I thought the red was a nice touch for Christmas!




Either he lost his keys, or he's checking to make sure he still has all his toes




And I guess he's taking too long about it because he's getting squawked at!

Merry Christmas from Southern California!

Who ever said that all gulls are one and the same? They had obviously never had the good luck to see a Heermans Gull.

Have a great Christmas.

Yes, they are handsome birds! And those really deep red beaks are perfect for the holiday spirit! :-)

Thats a cracking looking gull - bit of a change in the basic white and black colour scheme.
