Chicks!

Lots of babies along our coastline right now. These adorable little Western Gull chicks were only a few feet away, and mama was completely unconcerned. The five Perigrine Falcons nesting nearby pose a much greater threat!

Their colouring is most interesting. I guess it helps them blend into their surroundings. I can imagine that the peregrines pose a bigger problem to capture pics of their youngsters since they nest in trees.

@salza I actually a few less than stellar pictures of the Perigrines of whom three have recently fledged. They can be seen (and heard!) begging for food and practicing their acrobatic flights. What a sight!
