When a bird wants a rest, a bird wants a rest. This Laughing Bull (Larus atricilla) was keeping and eye on me, but did seemed concerned. Probably because he was sitting on a pole a few feet out in the water, and I didn't seem the adventurous kind. I got as close as I could, but he still sat there. Then I noticed a Willet a little ways down the shore line and turn to take a picture. When I turned back our gull was gone. Probably jealous he was getting all the attention.
One thing I did notice in all of this is that nasal passage in their beaks goes all the way through. I never got close enough to notice that before.
