Crab Fest

Do you love to eat Maryland style crabs? I do. Connie does. So do the birds. This Herring Gull came up with a prize in the rough surf on our beach. Look how proud he is.

 This Laughing Gull took advantage of the Herring Gull's enthusiasm when it shook off the flippers.

Even this little Sanderling tried to chomp on the leftover leg even though he usually only eats crab eggs.

Not to be outdone, this Ruddy Turnstone climbed up on a horseshoe crab to go to work.

On the other hand, this Semipalmated Plover decided to sit it out.

Crab Fest indeed.
