Grey-headed Gull ~ Paracas, Peru - Feb' 17

Monday, 27 February 2017

The Grey-headed Gull was common and confiding in Paracas, Peru ..
The majority of the birds were adults in non-breeding plumage with a fair proportion in breeding plumage ..

A sequence of shots showing an adult breeding pair bonding ...
The female took on the submissive posture begging with the male seemingly more dominant and upright.

It was great to watch especially some of the postures that the male made as you've seen above ..
