|PS027 A bird known as Sooty Gull going for the kill, photographed |
at Sohar Corniche.
Winter season has come to Oman as marked by the appearance of migrating birds such as the sooty gull. I happen to take a photo of this one when we were on the floating dock just outside the Sohar Fish Market watching local kids catching fish using tiny nylon rope and hooks. The area is swarmed with small fish giving opportunity for the sooty gull to swiftly and smoothly, and with precision to catch its meal for breakfast.
