What's with the hostility towards seagulls? I think they are great birds - good-looking, resourceful and great flyers. Watch them swoop in at the back of ferries and do amazing barrel-turns to grab French Fries tossed to the air by passengers. And they're friendly, too. Yesterday, this one landed and walked over to see if I had anything for him to eat. When I didn't, he waited to have his picture taken, then took off. Canada just named the "Grey Jay" its national bird, which seems crazy since I'll bet 95% of Canadians have never ever even seen one. Should have been the common, but elegant Seagull. Anton Chekhov, yes! Dave Winfield, boo!#toronto#birds#nationalbirdday

Happy national bird day to my favorite bird! Even though he doesn't understand personal space, attacks my feet and tries to eat my food I still love him. Here is a throwback of him trying to fly. #NationalBirdDay
