Black-Legged Kittiwake

Immature black-legged kittiwake. This bird has been making itself at home on and about the Caldwell pier at Port Arnsas for the past several weeks. This series of photos was taken at the pier on March 6, 2013. The bird spent most of the time perched on railings of the pier, no doubt waiting for a food offering from fishermen. While I was there it once flew off about 50 yards, landed in the water, bathed, then flew back to the pier to preen.
