a female, this was the 1st individual that we were able to see, than we saw quiet few of them.
female, you can see how they use their crossbills to eat pinenuts
male, taking some rest from filling up on pinenuts
male, back to being busy with pinenut hunting!
Lesser Black-backed Gull
a very distant individual.
another shot of the same individual.
in autumn plumage
a very very distant shot
had just caught a bird (most probably a Junco) and was starting on its lunch when we bumped into it!!
well, never mind its those people with binoculars & scopes, nothing to be bothered about!
all done with the meal!
time for some loosening the feathers!
Michigan City Lighthouse
our trip ended with the dreary weather at the Michigan City Harbour.
