I like to think I am a pretty gifted gal- among other skills- it appears I have the uncanny ability to attract birds… More specifically, seagulls.
Within minutes of sitting on the beach, in a park, or wherever, these damn birds flock to me. And in return, I have a “call” or a “coo” that I make to them. It’s my stupid-human-trick; and it usually seems to scare the crap out of them.
Recently we took a coastal walk in Point Lobos, Ca. and as if on cue, this seagull flew over. Mr. Heatherland encouraged me to try to make friends with it by doing my little birdy call…
Judging by the pictures, I am just as cautious around birds as I would be around bears.
*No seagulls were harmed in the making of this post.
