Walter J McCarthy Jr arrived Duluth 06/09/2019

Jeffery the Gull - The Walter J McCarthy Jr, one of those 1000ftrs. I love those big props that stir up the bottom fish for feeding. Makes catching fish so much easier.  That boat could carry 120 million herring and make a lot of gulls happy.

Jeffery the Gull - Grounded due to Fog 06/05/19

Jeffery here. I stopped by to say hi. Flying in this fog is scary, I almost ran into the Lift Bridge and then one of my cousins.

While you're waiting for the next boat, I thought you might enjoy viewing my beautiful plumage and great physique.  I happen to be very modest, but, I am one of the most beautiful birds around.  Hope you have a great day and enjoy the fog while it lasts, the sun and warmth will be back tomorrow.

Have a great day and keep your feathers dry!
