Gull Games

8 Apr

I thought I was hallucinating when I first noticed it. I HAD been studying really hard for the GRE, and Cool was asleep so I was the only one who saw it. And I watched this go on for a good half hour before I totally believed it:

The seagulls float down the river, get to a certain point, then fly back upstream to do it again. It seems like a game to them and they will do it over and over.

I was reminded, because today they were doing it again.  A year later.  And Cool was the one who noticed it this time.  Do you think birds play games?  Is there some reason they might do this?  Whatever the reason, watching it is highly entertaining to me, and makes me so glad to live in a place where I can see water from my living room.
