Lesser Yellowlegs - July 21

Herring Gulls and Green Crabs

European Green Crabs are an invasive species in Nova Scotia and compete with native species and so are considered a nuisance here. I'm no expert on crab identification but I believe that is what is pictured here. The gulls seem to love them as do the Common Loons which are often seen feeding on them as well. This wasn't what I had planned to photograph this day but sometimes you just have to take what you are given. Maybe the gulls were thinking the same thing.
