Junior Gull has been spotted again, in good health and twice as big since last we saw the little one.

An adolescent magpie was hanging out on the balcony outside my office window, and an adult gull was quite upset at the corvid’s presence. A behavior the gull would have only if it had babies.

Maybe Junior is fine after all?

I assume so. A gull chick twice as big as Junior was when last seen (a week ago) was out on the mossy roof, oblivious to its parent’s worry.

So Junior’s grown a mile or that’s another gull chick.

Whatever. There’s a baby out there to watch!

Junior, is that you? My, you’ve grown!
