Here is my second post of the year for Cardinal Guzman’s monthly photo challenge The Changing Seasons. The picture pairs coastal and inland elements. About five hours from the beach, this seagull (along with a small flock) has settled at a local shopping mall parking lot. Parking lot poles have become a part of this ring-billed gull’s natural environment! It still seems strange to see an ocean bird perched on the mall light pole when the shore is so far away. The expanse of gray asphalt must look like the ocean from up above!

Looking up gulls in my bird guide, I learned that the ring-billed gull is actually a widely seen gull found on all bodies of water and it is common to my area in the winter. Most interesting to me, the guide says these birds are often seen loitering around parking lots looking for handouts of food! Smart birds!

Parking lot yellow sends a cautionary pop of color and brightens the grayness of a rainy day!
