Wings on Wednesday

The Lesser Scaup is one of my favorite diving ducks because of the striking eye and the magnificent contrasting plumage.

The Gulls of Boundary Bay...

Out of all of the Gulls one's likely to see, out at Boundary Bay's Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen, British Columbia, the Ring-billed is the most common.


Sure, some would refer to these as "parking lot" Gulls, because they're often seen outside of fast food restaurants foraging for food, but I still think they're beautiful to look at. Their striking eyes and the beautiful contrast of black wingtips and white underparts make this Gull one of my favorites!
