Adult Herring Gulls displaying pair-bonding behavior in October – 20161009

I’ve written before about adult gulls showing pair-bonding behavior outside of the breeding season and today I came across another example. This time 2 Herring Gulls seen choking, long-calling and walking in parallel while mew-calling. I believe the male is the one with the slightly orange-tinged head.

IJmuiden harbour, the Netherlands, 9 October 2016.
