When I was down by the water, I noticed these white markings on the metal bulkhead by the edge of the water. I am assuming that these are Seagull droppings. It looked to me as if something was swimming upstream chasing tadpoles. I thought it was worth a shot. But get this, I just went to check on the correct term for Seagull excrement, and came across this information: "Do Seagulls Carry Disease? In a word, yes. In a recent study, seagulls were found to be responsible for E-coli contamination as well as carriers of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. It is best not to handle the birds or come in direct contact with them, for health reasons." Yikes! Aren't you glad that you read this blog?
