My Hungry Tag-Along

This late in the commercial bay scallop season, the seagulls are desperate and hungry. They will land on my boat and wait for me to hand them a free meal. And if you turn your back on them they will swoop down and steal a scallop right out of your wire basket on the culling board. The other morning while scalloping I had a hungry tag-along. He begged me for food. I hand fed him some scallops. A good way to pass the time during a long tow.

BUCK OF THE WEEK:
I set up one of my white flash trail cameras in a thick cedar forest recently and got some interesting pictures including these of a buck and a cat. The cat won the standoff.

Haha, Martie, Our Maine coon cat saw a deer eating the corn under our bird feeder and went right out. The deer backed off then Stomped its Hoof at the cat. We were cracking up watching. Thanks for getting this on tape!

I get cats on my trail cams all the time. There are tons of feral cats on the island. They must really suffer during the winter here on the island.

Enjoyed this post! You can almost sense the Seagulls thinking.

Not a comment but a question: anyone there missing an 8m boat? This article in Spanish tells how such a boat was found off the north coast of Spain: http://www.elcomercio.es/v/20120121/oriente/lancha-llanes-venia-20120121.html
Probably been in the water for months, any info gratefully received.
