Seagulls in the Blueridge Mountains?

“One meteorologist remarked that if the theory were correct, one flap of a seagull's wings would be enough to alter the course of the weather forever”

Konrad Lorenz (Austrian Zoologist, 1903-1989)

 

A group of seagulls have arrived near the Blueridge Mountains. We are about 250 miles from the ocean, so this is a bit odd. It has happened before, but they are certainly infrequent visitors. This fellow here flew very close to me, no tele adapter required.

 

Our Indian summer has ended, as the temperatures also plummeted

 

Often I have said that I am your constant student. On bird shots I have learned quite alot from El Paso Joe. By looking at his camera settings in the exif data. Here is one particular photo of his I like a lot: www.flickr.com/photos/grossinger/292124200/in/set-7215759...
