April 24, 2016 Gulls close-up

Seward, Alaska

Sometimes, it’s just really interesting to get close-ups of obliging gulls, particularly their heads. Who knew that the eye color of different species was so varied, or that they all have species-specific hot-hued orbital rings? Even the gape, if feathers don’t cover it, are particular colors. Toss in the bright yellow bills with the flashy red spot on a pure white head and you’ll see that the underappreciated gulls are worth a closer look.

Happy Birding!
