I love this photo that Steve Gosser posted on Facebook last week.
Textbooks describe ring-billed gulls as opportunistic feeders, “exploiting chances offered by immediate circumstances without reference to moral principle.”*
No respecters of age or experience, the top gull is a “teenager” (a second winter immature), the bottom one an adult.
There are loads of fish in Lake Erie but one of them decided to steal a fish from his neighbor rather than catching one on his own.
