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.”

Being a grandfather, husband, former public school teacher and Education Specialist for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service provide me with many life perspectives. Being a naturalist with a camera puts me outside. Trusting God and seeking His direction guides my words, and photos. We live in a magnificent world, come and look at it with me through my eyes, lens and words. To God be the glory. Enjoy the Cedar Waxwings being used for the current profile photo!
