During a trip into the mountainous regions of central Oregon, we came a Department of Fish and Game truck stocking Crane Prairie Reservoir with 10,000 fingerlings.
And the Ring-billed Gulls knew it and took full advantage of the small, confused fish.
Several dozen of the birds were slicing and dicing through the sky looking for an easy catch. And when a morsel was spotted, the gull dove and, in most cases, would come up with a fish.
It was an interesting day.
