Black-headed Gull

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in the world!

When Chester and I had our walk along the Red River yesterday, I found a few of the gulls that look to me as if they are the Black-headed Gull.  There were 3 of them floating along so I got a few pictures of them as they went by.  I also took a picture of the big tree across the river and it still looks like the river has not moved up at all.  If the peak is coming this week as predicted, I predict a low peak.  🙂

I took some time to figure out what these guys are, but the Black-headed Gull seems to be it.  I got all 3 birds in at least one picture, so they are all the same anyway.

Click here to see a picture I found of them online and let me know what you think.  They are listed as rare/accidental in this area by Avibase – Bird Checklists of the World  Manitoba

I’ve got time for a bit of Africam viewing before heading off to work.  Have a great day.
