Thanks a lot. I call him "singing seagull" but he was not making too much sound when his mouth was wide open. Maybe he was truly bored and was yawning instead! David

Thanks for the info. I actually need to do some research as to what he was doing. In reality he was not making any sound when the mouth was wide open! David

Great capture! He does look like he is yawning. I suppose he wouldn't be singing 'Oklahoma', where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain. He is making a great big 'O'.

Christian, thank you for your visit. For some reason I did not see your comments for all this time. ~jean~, thank you for your nice comments and visit. You are right he is yawning not singing. I just put in singing (long time ago) for fun. Ha! It has been changed. Best regards to both of you, David
