the kittiwake returns, photobombing gulls

fotobombing coot
fotobombing kittiwake and goose
fotobombing merganser
 notice the distinctive 'M' pattern of the juvenile kittiwake in flight
The splash is where a companion merganser had been a second ago. These are diving ducks. Sometimes there is one, sometimes a dozen, and then in an instant, they disappear from the viewfinder.
Wrangler, a street rescue five years ago, is fit and handsome. Upon being given to his present owners, he was a malnourished, scrawny wretch. To-day, he is on his first birdwalk. Sunday, 19 January. East 72nd. Cleveland lake shore.
