The snooze sanctuary security perimeter maintained by vicious, sharp-eyed, loud-mouth seagulls providing tired ducks their well deserved rest.
This guarded snooze sanctuary exists in Montreal’s West Island Centennial Park and our beaked, webbed-footed buddies enjoy this luxury after a hard day hunting for morsels of aquatic food from the man-made lake.
As my picture shows their winged buddies the alert, sharp-eyed loud-mouth seagulls maintain the security perimeter while the ducks take some shut-eye. Make no mistake about it, these gulls can be vicious defending what is theirs, especially scavenged food.
The park is a welcomed temporary refuge for a variety of fowl including these as well as various songbirds whose beautiful voices are heard from May late into the Fall by the multitudes of visitors strolling and biking the numerous pathways that traverse the grounds around the lake.
This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”SANCTUARY”.
