Laughter on the Shore

Name Contradictor: Laughing Gull

 

Its call resembles a laugh but in bird song.

Nothing else laughable…

Beauty: distinct black, white and gray

Beak trimmed in complimentary red.

 True bird of the coasts: Gulf, and Atlantic…

Nesting, and feeding near the surf.

Regal, graceful, stately symbol sea and shore.

Why the Laughing Gull?

God said, “… let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.”
