Seagulls are often considered the pests of the beach. However, after spending some time at the shore this summer I’ve realized they are very much like you and me.
They like to eat…a lot. They are omnivores and will eat just about anything. I bet they’d even eat a tin can if given the opportunity. I noticed they are not big fans of sharing their food, just like some people I know.
“Mmmm, my favorite…sushi!”
“Oh, an orange peel. Why do humans throw this part away? It’s delish!”
“Get your own damn sushi!”
After a big meal they like to take a nap. There is nothing better than a nap on the beach.
“I’m so tired, you’d think I ate turkey.”
In order to keep in shape, seagulls like to exercise. In addition to flying they enjoy all types of exercise: yoga, swimming and dancing just to name a few.
“I can swim AND fly. Can you fly Michael Phelps?”
“I’m a dancing machine. Watch me get down.”
At the end of a long day they enjoy looking out across the ocean, reflecting upon they day they’ve had and dreaming about what adventures tomorrow will bring.
“Food…check. Nap…check. Exercise…check. Maybe a little shopping tomorrow?”
Just like a child or favorite pet, as soon as you have a decent shot lined up, they turn their head. Damn them!
“Oh, were you trying to take a picture of ME? My bad.”
