Yes he's coming for me, but I'm feeding them.
They were fed by my mammaw (grandmother) everyday at the same time- 4pm. While I was at her house for her funeral I went out on the porch at 4pm, not thinking of the birds till they all started landing on the porch & flying over head. It made me smile, they missed her too. In her memory I fed them. They would loop around and around, then one at a time, dive down closer to me, slightly pausing right above me and wait for me to toss a piece of bread. It was like she taught them to take turns.

    I think the sea gulls are sending you a message through your beloved late grandmother to keep feeding them in her memory and to also feed the beautiful song birds of nature who bring such joy with their presence as well...A wonderful capture, Robin...Keep up the great work.
