The Ring-billed Gulls are undoubtedly going to be one of the common species of urban wildlife I see here in Meaford. Down on the waterfront yesterday, with a strong wind from the northeast, and only one gull was around. Even if it was there to eat garbage, it was still graceful.
It looked like an immature gull, hatched this year, but it had pretty well developed the adult colouration. It stayed on the ground snatching at garbage except when I got too close. But when it flew, it looped around gracefully until it thought it was safe to land again.
