I love birds. When I was in Trieste, I took my time to focus on these beautiful birds, they are intelligent creatures which we tend to forget. These photos are interesting. I observed them hunting food, especially crows, who wait at the dock, waitfor the sea wave to turn away and jumps down to pluck a seashell.
Seagulls, however, chase after the boats and ships. So do crows, but they hide in the ship. It was surprising how resourceful they are.
