20 (...30...maybe more) gulls were riding a thermal over our house an hour ago. It's 60 F with blue sky and sunshine. We couldn't tell whether they were all herring gulls; too high in the sky. First they would circlr on the warm air until they were high enough, then shoot off in a northerly direction. The calls were mostly the occasional "we're here" variety, but I did here a few "food here!" calls as well. They may have been heading over to the neighbor's pastures to hunt earthworms.

What a beautiful morning!
