Speaking of Dinner ...

Scouting for my Barnegat field trip, I came upon this gull. And its fish.

It didn't seem to quite know what to do with it.

I watch as the fish is dragged across the sand. First one way, and then back again. Sometimes stretching it out, others curling it up.

But the gull never got around to eating it. Perhaps it couldn't bite through the skin? I did see it trying to bite. And despite a large number of other gulls in the area, none seemed interested. Very curious, as gulls routinely challenge each other for food.

Nothing like a sea food dinner! I bet that skin is too tough to bite doesn't look very appetizing lol
