Hezu , I appreciate the correction! I ran the photo through the Merlin bird identifier app and it agreed with you while also suggesting the bird on the left might be a black-browed albatross (!). Iíll correct the record Ö

Howard, although northern fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis) looks similar to many gulls, they are not gulls. And based on the beak, I would say these are fulmars.

No obligatory bird picture this time despite that I have plenty of bird shot I haven't posted here yet since I aboard a train just now and the WiFi is bit on the slow side...

All the birds facing the same way on the roof top here, but I couldn't make out what sort of collective I was viewing.

Indeed nice woodpeckers and the goose is a very special and unflattering pose. They sometimes do that when I get too close on my bicycle and I ususally just move away, never thinking to take a photo of this defense posture.

Here's a pigeon, judging by the rings on both legs probably a homing pigeon taking a small rest before moving on.

Brian, Fred and all. The Pileated Woodpeckers were photographed at Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee NWR which is where Larry spotted his Pileated Woodpecker with bird author Richard Crossley and a small group including me. I sure wish he could have seen this family of birds. BTW, the images were taken on Sunday and I learned today that the youngsters fledged on Monday.
