During the first full day in Inverhuron, birding was limited to sightings around the cottage and we managed to add Northern Cardinal to our Bruce County list before heading to the public beach to enjoy the surf created by strong winds.
We were not the only ones surfing that day. Ring-billed Gulls soared above us and floated down effortlessly to a level less than 2 metres above the sand.
Being scavengers or somewhat opportunistic, the gulls were most likely waiting for handouts. But on this day, I would like to think the gulls were enjoying the high winds as much as we were enjoying the surf of Lake Huron.
