Where Have All The Seagulls Gone?

We search for them and wonder where have they all gone?
Once the seaside was full of them and now we just see the odd few.

Well the city dump is where you will find them.
Dozens of them.
TONS of them!
A whole sea of birds seemingly floating on your leftovers,
Gorging themselves fat, for the cold winter.

These are strong heavy birds surviving on germs.
These germs is what we kill every day trying to keep ourselves healthy.

Makes you wonder doesn't it?
As of yet I haven' seen one sick bird.

Very good observation!

We don't have a lot of seagulls out here in the prairie but we do see a few every so often.

Always enjoy stopping by - even though I have not done so for a while. Will try to make up for lost time as your blog is always most interesting.

Russell You should have plenty of birds in the prairie.Maybe not seagulls but other birds.

Wow, that is a lot of seagulls, almost Hitchock like amount.;)
I guess the birds are just so smart and find only the good stuff to eat - but it just shows how much good food we throw out.;)

We have a few, but they are silent breeds. I live near to the sea, but I have to visit my family in the centre of England to hear seagulls.

Zuzana - I think so.
Too much waste on this planet. Young people are taught recycling but when it comes to recycling old, they want to buy new.I tell my son antiques are better than the new stuff.Fix it, sand it, learn something and make it special.

Isn't that something Anji?
We used to have many seagulls which begged for food by the ocean but they discouraged people from feeding them so they flew away and now I see they found a better place to feast. The dump also has eagles, falcons and mice so lots to go around lol
At Granville Island they still have some that steal food from people bringing food out to eat outside. They especially love fries and one cocky one will fly in and spill/steal the bag of fries and then they all come in and feast
