In search of our Snowy Owl (who seems to have disappointingly disappeared) around the Kent Narrows, I spotted this juvenile Ring-billed Gull feasting on a female Chesapeake Bay blue crab on a dock at one of the local marinas.
At one point, I told the juvenile I was jealous that it was still eating crabs this late in the season.
So the generous gull made me an offer!
I declined with thanks for his offer AND the photo op,
but so wished that I really was home pickin’ at a pile of crabs!
If you love seafood & have never had a Chesapeake Bay blue crab (they turn orange when cooked), crab cake or meal made with authentic Chesapeake Bay blue crab meat, you seriously don’t know what you’re missing!
