Our Christmas star

 We spent Christmas in California, looking for birds along the shorelines near Monterey. This Western Gull was found on one of the wharfs in town. It wanted to eat the starfish. but had two problems: the obvious size issue, and all of the other gulls that wanted a taste. The bird tried hard, when it had the chance, to rip a starfish arm free, but those starfish are made of tough stuff. The gull eventually flew away, taking with it the end of the story.
