Ring-billed Gull at Wreck Beach


Ring-billed Gull (winter) / Goéland à bec cerclé / Larus delawarensis: Taken January 9, 2015 at Wreck Beach in Pacific Spirit Regional Park, close to the Point Grey campus of the University of British Columbia, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. Not baited, called in or set up.

  • Top: ISO 400, 300mm, f/6.3, 1/1600
  • Bottom: ISO 400, 300mm, f/7.1, 1/2000

[In case you are wondering, the bird below was so friendly that I actually had to back up on a couple of occasions. Maybe it was looking for a handout?]
