I wonder how many of my neighbors saw me on my knees in the middle of the Target parking lot. And then running back and forth trying to shake more fries out of the box, since the gulls would only come if they could actually see the fries.

The cars were almost continuously coming in and out while I was doing this. Why oh why did I do this on a saturday afternoon!!

Thanks all! What an incredibly fun challenge!

Very nice capture of bird behavior. I've seen raptors hold up their wings like that, as if to declare victory and ownership of their "kill". Congrats on your well deserved top 10.

Wendy, how the heck did you lure this monster with 2 mere leftover fries? Did you use drugs? Bravo!

In Paris birds eat croissants so they don't grow these amazing wings! 8

ROFL The pop of red from the McDonald's fries packaging is great. It's pretty sad that I can identify it without any words.
