Vos gueules les mouettes, riez donc!



Chroicocephalus ridibundus Charadriiformes - Laridae


Plus bruyant, exubérant et communicatif que la mouette c'est difficile!
Bien que ces couples de Mouettes rieuses aiment nicher proches les uns des autre, bagarres, insultes et règlements de comptes vont bon train malgré tout.


Black-headed gull
Although couples appreciate nesting together for safely, they are boisterous, unruly and will readily get into fights to steal the neighbor's nest!

Elles ne se font pas de cadeaux et se tapent sur la tête dès que possible!

They hit each other with their feet to deter the eventual competitor to get closer from their family: 



D'autres sont collées à leur nid mais y vont de leurs bruyants commentaires, encourageant leur partenaire à dégager les alentours des concurrents!

 Others are stuck sitting on eggs but comment noisily, encouraging their mates to get rid of invaders:

 


D'autres encore promènent sagement leurs poussins:

Still others wander around with their chicks:
 



Le beatnik de plus près:



 Mais dans les airs, les bagarres vont toujours bon train:

Oh, those aggressive gulls.
They're noisy, too . . . I know.

Love the markings on those cute chicks.

If there is one non tolorant bird it is the gull. Last Thursday I was watching a Hobby being harassed by one of these gulls.
You captured these moments splendidly Noushka.
Great captures.

Roos

You're right, Noushka!
Whenever I go to the beach and watch the seagulls, it is a general and deafening confusion !!
Take care

Superb shots of a wonderful range of interaction. This series proves how really worthwhile it is to study birds rather than just look at them.
