Sometimes I just want friends to see a bird I photographed, no rules.

Looks like it might have a condition called wet feather.

learned something new--interesting.  He was hanging on the shoreline and we are having decent weather, sunny and relatively warm, so hopefully warmth and preening will square him away.

I already shared a Great Egret pic to the "Share Your Best Photo Of The Day" thread, but feel like showing off this Ring-billed Gull, the best one I've taken of the species.  I had my good camera in my car while shopping after birding which afforded me to opportunity to capture this.  Any iPhone picture wouldn't have been worth posting:

@BigOlyWhat is your World life list? I'm just curious.

1150 photos of different birds but I lost about 250 because of a problem with a chip.  I've seen many birds but I don't count birds I haven't photographed.

Not counting ones you haven't photographed has to be heart breaking sometimes.

You actually saw a wrentit? I only hear them. I’ve only ever seen three of them! 

Yeah, she was pretty low down. I only saw her (she had just been making the female call, so I'm assuming female) for a few seconds, long enough to get those shots.
