Chatty seagull - right on target Patricia.

Thanks for the birdsongs, Joan.

Those are funny Patricia.  The verbose seagull reminds me of the pack of seagulls in the movie "Finding Nemo".  Instead of squawking, the director had them all saying "Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!" when they saw food.  I thought it was hilarious.

A goldfinch fed at the feeder today! Hooray!

Patricia, love your sea gulls and ... oh dear! I don't know what kind of bird that graceful dude is. Really made me laugh and smile.

I agree with Mindy, I miss you Steph!
