This next gull was in a large group that gathered at the back of the boat during a pelagic (sea bird) cruise on December 13th, 2008. We were in Delaware waters at the time of the photo.

This bird was catching fish on the Susquehanna River near Port Deposit, MD on March 19th, 2011. I am not sure what the large floating thing is near the bird in the last two photos. It does have eyes, so I guess it is a large dead fish.
