Black Headed Gull

Saturday morning past, the same day as my last post. Brad James and i also headed to quidi vidi lake to see what was still lingering around or had maybe just arrived.
The very first thing we noticed was that the black headed gulls had black heads !

Its amazing how much more attractive looking the birds are when there in there breeding plumage (well 80% plumage). One thing i noticed which i hadn't noticed before was that the newly arrived ring billed gulls do not like black headed gulls.As soon as one walks by or is too close the ring billed gulls flips out and bites the little black headed gulls.
I don't have many pictures of this species, so I'm going to try over the next few weeks before they leave to get some nicer shots of them !
