Yellow-legged Gull nesting on the ground
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I found this Yellow-legged Gull nesting on Sveta Katarina (St. Catherine's Island), just off the coast of Rovinj in Croatia. Yellow-legged Gulls mainly breed in large colonies between the rocks on coastal cliffs and on rocky islands in the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas and the Atlantic Ocean. They nest on the ground, generally in the grass or on sand or pebbles. The nest is a cup-shaped scrape, lined with grass and twigs.

Did you know that Seagulls can drink both fresh and salt water. Most animals are unable to do this, but seagulls have a special pair of glands right above their eyes which is specifically designed to flush the salt from their systems through openings in the bill.

Trio of Eastern white pelicans
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pelicans are characterised by their enormous bills and large throat pouches, which they use to catch fish and to drain the water from the scooped-up contents before swallowing their prey, whole. Pelicans have the second largest wingspan of all living birds, after the great albatrosses. They can grow up to 1.8 metres and their bill makes up to a quarter of that length. Their average life span in the wild is 10 to 25 years, but the pelicans of St James’s Park have been known to live for up to 50 years. They were first introduced to the Royal Park in 1664 as a gift from the Russian Ambassador which led to a long royal tradition of collecting exotic and unusual wildfowl.

" Looking into the Sun" is a photo of a brown pelican expecting fish from me but takes a moment to look into the sunset. It has a beautiful hand painted background to bring out his true beauty. I showcased the photograph with a wonderful picture frame and show it above a sofa setting, be sure to check my website for all the many printing possibilities🔆🔆🔆⤵️⤵️⤵️

For some reason there are always lots of seagulls where I live. They just hang out casually, with no frigging sea in sight for miles!! Not that I mind, but why though?? 🤔😦
