Free entertainment

The gulls were providing free entertainment today. This one looks bored…

but this one must be angry or upset. He’s squawking about something.

Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of the really frightening gull encounter I saw this morning…frightening for the gulls, not for me.  A small hawk of some kind zipped across the path in front of me and flew out over the river, nearly colliding with a gull. The frightened gull squealed and squawked loudly for the next three or four minutes. Maybe he was playing “Paul Revere” and warning all the little birds about the danger. If that’s the case, he was doing a great job! As I’ve said before, there is rarely a dull moment along the trail. You never know what you might encounter.

Thanks for joining me on the trail today.
