If the city ever had an official "city bird" the gull would be it. From Herring Gulls to Blackbacks they converge onto the waterfront always on the look out for an easy meal. When the feeding frenzy is on gulls of all shapes and sizes fly every which way. For years I would always be amazed that dispite the crowded skies, they would manage to avoid one another. Air traffic control of the senses I would imagine.
But today I saw something I never seen before,a mid-air collision! Right in front of me! Though I didn't catch the collision on camera, there they were two gulls heading into the drink with contorted wings in a feathery splash down. They bobbed in the water for a moment right side up, shook their heads..... then flew away!
They think I have something for them.
