Gull Chasing Gull

When one gull finds a snack, one or more gulls, of course, will give chase to try to snatch it.  They usually have a few loud ‘words’ to say as well.

Gull Chasing Gull With Snack


It’ll require a smart aerial move to outsmart the snack possessor whose plan is to not give it up.

Maybe something like this?

“I’ll Take That”


Nope, he missed.  The smarter snack possessor out-maneuvered the chaser’s attempt.

This action goes on often when they flock into the creek.  Fun stuff to watch, listen, and even try to shoot.  I got lucky here.  🙂

  1. It definitely is fun watching seagulls chase each other for food. It’s equally fun to watch them play musical pilings. I am often amazed that one will approach a piling and the seagull on the piling will so willingly leave it and head to another (occupied) piling and the switch goes on and on. Very rarely do I see a ‘piling sitter’ refuse to give up his perch. They sure are entertaining!

  2. Great shots. Donna! The gulls have a predilection to steal food from others or among themselves. 🙂

  3. Seagulls are amusing creatures. They adapt perfectly, watching for the right opportunity for a fisherman to turn away and then SWOOP in! Nice post in seagulls Donna 🙂

    • Thank you, Al! A secret…..I just love to hear the gulls bickering and calling! They remind me of my childhood days at the beaches and boardwalks along Delaware and Maryland. 🙂
