Birds.gif: Seagull Stomp

You better just click on this
The video that this striking .gif image comes from was taken long before the amateurnithologist had a nice camera or was indeed an amateurnithologist at all. Identifying him is hard with quality this low, but current bet is that he is a Herring Gull, most common gull in Scotland (where this video was taken). This odd and enticing behavior is likely intended to draw worms or other insects out of the ground (perhaps by mimicking the sound of rain), but it's all speculation at this point.

And just for fun..

Oh yeah, and bird blog is back, act like you know
