One of the really cool things to me is how quickly gulls will appear when food is tossed out. These (obviously) were taken on the beach. From where I live, you can't see the water. I can go out in the backyard with nary a gull in sight and throw pieces of stale bread in the air. Then I count to see how long before gulls, raucously squalling "Mine! Mine!" will appear. (Sidebar: if you haven't seen _Finding Nemo_ you need to. It's a great movie that, among other things, perfectly captures gulls.) I think my record so far was something like 3 seconds. From zero to incoming in 3 seconds ;D
