|This gull was usually around my workplace. In the mornings, he would hang in the back area. As it was quiet and warm from the sun. He would come for food and just hang out. Once the sun set, he would be in the front of the store. As the back was super dark. It took some time to figure out, but he had wing damage.
I am kind of bummed, as he has disappeared. Mainly as I was planning on catching him. Then taking him to a bird rescue centre, in Kanata. I checked his usually spots and found nothing at all.
My feeling is someone beat me to it. So I'll just think positive thoughts for him. Some may think, It's just a gull. Yet a week or so of feeding and hanging out, I gained lots of trust from him.
He would feed and drink, then sit with his back towards me. I was usually 4 - 8 feet away. Even got him to come in the front door of the store. Luckily no customers saw this...
So this shot is of him, at his favourite place. Outside of the door, looking in. He would do this for tens of minutes. No one would be in view, so I always pondered what he was looking at. Or thinking.....Funny how one animals fascination, can become your own.
So thanks little guy for the memories and good luck!
