BPW: Ring-billed Gull

The Ring-billed Gull is our most familiar gull here in northeastern Illinois. These photos were taken in mid-October when we finished up our fall foliage drive (through both parts of Kettle Moraine State Park in southeastern Wisconsin) in Lake Geneva. Gulls lined up on the empty piers, bracing themselves against the wind.

    They are much nicer at the shore than at the local McDonalds. Isn’t it amazing how the right photo can make even these “common” birds more interesting?
