These birds look cool. I did not realize there was two species at first and so  had some trouble to ID them.  I like their hairdo :)  I have no idea of what species the little one belongs to. It seem to have glasses on and just about to clap it´s "hand´s", Very cool :)

Hm, don´t think that is a Silver Gull after all. :)
