This herring gull did not mind at all when I walked up to him to take his photo. He is perched on a post at the Grand Haven city Marina. These birds are always looking for a hand out and they have found that people will feed them. But I had nothing to give. He will need to find his own lunch, maybe a dead fish or some such flotsam.
If he wants a change of scenes he can always fly a short distance to the sandy beach a few blocks away.
