    Default The scavenging globetrotter

    ID: Brown hooded gull

    A sorry state of these migrant beauties, usually seen feeding on the food handed or thrown away passerby, these seemed to be resting on the water, dispersed all along the creek, until all of a sudden all started to flock together, and almost seemed like fighting for something. After spending a long time trying to spot the reason for the combat, i realized one of them seemed to be carrying a piece of, what seemed like a roti, while others attempted to snatch it from its hold. Unsure how it caught hold of it, either it was floating around with other wastes that was dispersed along with the waste flowers.

    You have captured the right moment, Prajwal. Not sure why they are scavenging on food. Maybe there is a shortage of their natural food (fish, etc..), due to more fishing? Thanks for sharing.

    All wild animals and birds are opportunistic feeders. They need to feed to sustain themselves. Over the years they wildlife have learnt to scavenge on the human food waste. That is why in some of the tourist places the gulls can be seen from close as tourists feed them. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
