Free For All

Published by at 7:30 am under Bird Behavior,Water and Shore

The scientific literature calls ring-billed gulls opportunistic omnivores or as the gulls themselves would say:

“We’ll eat anything and we’ll snatch it from anybody.”

Early this month Shawn Collins photographed this behavior when a gull caught some bread at Pymatuning Spillway.

The chase was on.

He was nearly overrun by the gang when …  ooops!  he dropped a big chunk!

The bread fell free for all of them.

The result was a free-for-all. ;-)
