In the early morning, I often see flocks of seagulls milling about in the middle of empty (or mostly empty) parking lots. There doesn’t seem like there’s any reason for them to be there at all.
[li]They’re not eating anything that’s been tossed out.[/li][li]There’s no dumpster nearby.[/li][li]There’s no open ground nearby where drowning worms may have crawled out to “safety”[/li][li]There’s no large body of water nearby. The Potomac’s anywhere from 2-10 miles away; the Chesapeake around 40.[/li][li]There’s no slug pick-up point for the carpool lanes :D:D[/li][/ul]
So just what are these flocking birds doing?
