Wharf Clean-up Crew

Daily Image - 29 February 2012 - Wharf Clean-up Crew

The most ubiquitous seabird of them all, where would we be without the omnipresent Gull, often referred to as the Seagull. The most common gull on the eastern shore of North America is this fella, the Herring Gull. Although their natural food is herring and other small fish, they are scavengers of uncanny ability and extreme agility. These Sentinels of the Wharf clean up virtually anything that falls within their sight, and provide spontaneous entertainment for young and old alike.
