Gull with a Starfish

This gull had a little bit of difficulty eating the starfish it has in its mouth. It tried to get it down while swimming around, but the arms stuck out too much. A couple of times the starfish fell out and the gull make a quick lunge to get it before it sank. Eventually the gull climbed on a rock and pecked at it there. I did not see whether it was actually successful in making the starfish a meal.

Location: Crescent Harbor Breakwater, Sitka, Alaska
