Around here, if anything's bigger than an insect and has wings, it's pretty much either an aircraft or a crow. If I want to reliably encounter gulls, in my experience, I have to head down to Vancouver; I don't see many hanging around the Fraser River. The other day I found myself in a vantage point above a crow just chilling on the concrete edge of a pool across the street from Canada Place, and it didn't take long for me to get another chance to sharpen my instant-shot reflexes. I think this worked out okay.
