A shorebird known as surfbird...here under the observant eye of a gull, probably a herring gull. I am seldom certain about gulls. I think there may be a graduate degree in the area of gulls and their allies.

The story here is that I hiked to several locations trying to locate these birds without success. You have to be right on the spot around here because these birds, in their large flocks, will fly by you at seventy miles per hour ...here one second, gone the next. Anyway, returning home, I glanced out a window, to see a large mixed flock of gulls and shorebirds land on our beach...about thirty feet from a porch. Petersburg, Alaska.
