Recently, several Laughing Gulls were spotted all around Cape Ann. Laughing Gulls are easy to confuse with Bonaparte’s Gulls, which at this time of year, also have black heads. As the breeding season winds to an end, the Bonaparte’s black head feathers give way to white, where only a smudge of an earmuff will remain. Bonaparte’s Gulls breed in the Arctic; we see them on both their northward and southward journeys and some make Massachusetts their winter home. Small flocks of Bonaparte’s Gulls can be seen at area beaches including Good Harbor Beach, Lighthouse Beach, and Wingaersheek Beach.
While foraging, Bonaparte’s Gulls vigorously churn the sandy bottom with their feet to stir up tiny marine creatures. Note the transitioning head feathers in the above gull.
They are feeding intently, fortifying for the migration, and often get into disagreements over feeding turf.
The easiest and quickest way to distinguish Laughing Gull from Bonaparte’s Gull is to look at the legs and feet. Bonaparte’s Gulls are a vivid orange, more pink later in the season. The Laughing Gull’s legs and feet are blackish-reddish.
Bonaparte’s Gulls have bright orange legs and feet

I was moved she shared it with her mom, and her friends. Should I be surprised 20 somethings are sharing it? Less than 10,000 views when I saw it.
I didn’t know it had a name.
My foster Mom says I am a total sweetheart but very energetic. I will do best in a home with lots of activity ( Maybe Agility would be good). I am crate trained and will whine a little but do very well in the crate. My foster mom says that I love lap time even though I am not your typical lap dog size. I love all the pups here from young to old and have gotten along with them all. If you are familiar with border collies or have an active lifestyle maybe I am the dog for you. Please stop by and meet me and see if we are a perfect match.

The shelter right now is in need of –PATE STYLE CAT FOOD and PEDIGREE CANNED PUPPY FOOD. Thank you .
So, Alex Rodriguez returns to Fenway Park to face the Red Sox for what will most likely be the last time tonight.
It is hard not to think back to 2004 and that time when A-Rod slapped the ball out of Bronson Arroyo’s glove… like a four year-old who didn’t want to share a toy…during Game 6 of the ALCS. You may recall that the Red Sox went on to win that game…as well as Game 7, to go on to the World Series. Which, of course, we also won. Chills.
I photographed almost every home game during the 2004 season and that little episode only fueled the fans desire to win that much more as the team returned home. Which, I didn’t think was even possible.
