Behind The Camera - A Screech of Gulls

Andy | Tuesday, December 20, 2011 | Best Blogger Tips

While I was out for a walk with my wife, we came across this scene of gulls sitting in the sheltered of the bay. At this location Lake Ontario is to my back. The gulls were here because...

...it was a extremely windy day. The white caps were rolling in on the shore.


It wasn't me but something spooked the screech of gulls. Yup, that's the name given to a group of sea gulls. All three photos were shot in automatic mode. Not only did I have fun taking the photos but I also learned a new meaning for the word screech. The most famous screech in Canada is Newfie Screech.


  1. You're right, that IS the most famous screech in Canada. Haven't thought of it for a long time, though.
    Love your photos, Andy.
    All the best for the holiday season and the new year!

  2. Never heard that before but it's a good name for it. Beautiful photos!

  3. HI Andy...Love you blog...
    Lovely and fabulous photo that last on ...just beautiful!!
    Don't know about the Newfie Screech..even though I grew up 15 minutes from the Canadian border..Woodstock N. B. : }


  4. Well, you do learn something new each day. That is an appropriate name for a 'bunch' of seagulls.
