Baby Gulls!!!

I went out to search for baby Mew Gulls today.
I found them out at Potter's Marsh, just 
a short drive out of town.
Don't you think they are adorable?

I caught this little one snuggling up to its mom.
You have to love those beautiful feet!!

They are all getting pretty independent, but are still sticking
close to mom.  They are also pretty good little swimmers at this stage.

The mother was busy rounding up her little chicks.  This particular mom
had at least two chicks.  There was a third chick that was off
wandering about that might have been hers as well.

Just like all babies, nap time is important!!

Off in the distance was a baby Arctic Tern,  it was busy
trying to swallow a fish dinner.

I wonder how many fish this baby eats in a day...
I'm sure he keeps his parents very busy!


  1. Oh those babies are cute. I love the little patterned head.

  2. They look so very sweet Chris!

  3. Aren't they so sweet..I wish I could see some gull babies around here. We should be able to but I guess we don't know where to look.

    Happy Independence Day to you and yours! xo

  4. Fabulous pictures once again Chris! I love seagulls. (see my blog from last week) I somehow missed this post last week and found it just now... :-)
