Gulls and Yellowlegs on a cloudy afternoon

The weather was quite nice this morning - sunny with some blue skies. Unfortunately, I wasn't ready to go out until the afternoon, which by then was cloudy and windy. I ended up just biking to South Dyke Trail and part way into Steveston before heading back home.

Across from London Farm, there is a little beach where you can wander into. There were some gulls resting on the logs, so I thought it was a good opportunity to get some bird-in-flight shots. I took a lot of shots, but only these ones were presentable.

Glaucous-winged Gull (Larus glaucescens)
Like its yellow bill and pink feet.

Then I continued biking towards Steveston and spotting a small group of Lesser Yellowlegs.

Lazy Mallards and hard-working Yellowlegs.

Pretty bird.

Fatty and skinny. This would make a great captioned photo, too bad I am not witty enough to come up with a funny caption.
