Description

This fellow was sitting for a very long time waiting for a bald eagle juvenile (2 yr) to finish eating some fish remains. It waited, and waited... giving a mew every now and then. Finally the eagle moved off, but only just one post away. Nothing left but the gills. The gull looked at it, decided it was not worth the risk, and sadly flew away.... (hope for better luck elsewhere!)
