Hi Tweeters,

We and neighbors along the South bank of Orcas Island have been observing Glaucous-winged gulls feeding on Madrone berries during the recent stormy weather. Flocks of gulls circle close to the over hanging Madrone Trees and while facing into the wind, hover to a stop over the branches and snatch the berries from the tree without landing on the branch.
