Description

These two Glaucous-winged Gulls have started their breeding season and are mating now over the next couple of days. They are calm and friendly right now, but as soon as they are incubating their eggs and their chicks start to hatch, they will turn into highly aggressive birds. It is crucial for them to be aggressive, since Bald Eagles, Peregrine Falcons and North American River Otters will predate their nests.
