Seagulls Day 2....

Seagulls are such opportunists.  I was sitting on the beach yesterday reading my book and noticed a group of seagulls checking out an abandoned beach bag.  They circled it for a while before one of the gulls worked up his nerve and dove into the beach bag. Immediately, he pulled out a bag of chips and flew a few feet away with them.  (I think they have done this before!)  At that point another gull challenged him and gained control of the goodies. He proceeded to tear open the bag and eat his fill while the other gulls stood around like his security detail and watched for the owner of the chips to come back.  Funny little birds!
