Mom and daddy Len spent a day in Texel, which is the largest of the Wadden Islands in the north of Holland. There is a LOT of nature and LOTS of animals on Texel, which you will see from my upcoming posts! This made me SUPER excited!
My first story from Texel is about the ferry ride from the town of Den Helder across the WaddenSee to Texel.
I am excited to report that I have lots of Seagull birdie friends here! Seagulls are mostly thought of as a nuisance, but I think these birdies are beautiful!
The ones with the dark faces are called Black-Headed Gulls. They are common in Europe, but only found in small numbers in Eastern North America.
They flew directly overhead and very close to mom. My mom is a good reporter and she got some great shots!
These birdies look so graceful. It was very windy and it looked like they were just floating in the air. I wish I knew how to float like this!
But what I really want to know is why do their heads are so dark when their bodies are white? They look like their heads are dirty and they need to take a bath! I bet I could teach them how to take a bath! I am very clean, you know......
There were also Dutch Herring Gulls mixed in with the Black-Headed Gulls. (I will tell you a story about this type of gull in a later post.)
I like these birdies and I am glad they are my new friends!
(P.S. I hope this is not my last post.......my mom is so beyond frustrated with Blogger right now!)
