The ones with hair

Once while sitting on a Western Australian beach, I was very amused by the appearance of a few seagulls which looked like they were wearing a black toupee. It was also funny because they were having as bad a hair day as I was and were looking quite frazzled (WA is well known for becoming increasingly windy in the afternoon). It turns out that the ones with hair are not seagulls, they are a different kind of bird called a crested tern. Obviously both gulls and terns are quite happy to have each other as company. Also, if this photo is at all representative of these populations… seagulls are lazier and prefer to sit down.

      1. Well below zero today but not windy. A good down coat, boots and good hat and gloves is enough to get around pretty well if you don’t have to be out in the cold. Lovely snowfall that has provided us with a winter wonderland and this week we’ll have temps in the 20s and 30s through Christmas – that will feel quite warm!
