What is it?

~~~~~gull_0226I thought I was photographing a local seagull this morning, until…
gull_0228I downloaded them to my computer this evening and noticed

the yellow hood it is wearing.

gull_0227The crane and buildings are at least one kilometre away

and my 200 mm zoom lens was stretched to full zoom.
gull_0229The cap, or hood, the bird is wearing alerted me to the fact the I had

photographed something I had not previously sighted.

gull_0230Could it be a rare new species?  Could I get naming rights?

I can just see it…Woolly’s Golden Gull  😉

If it’s pest at your back door please tell what it’s called.

Google has not been helpful…this time.

seagull_0021I love the colour blends on seagulls.

kookaburra_0202This kookaburra and its mates would eat out of our hands.

Unfortunately, my camera, or its operator, was not performing at peak level

on the day, which lead to limited usable photos.
