He is a young seagull who was born this summer. The brown feather implies that. He is now practicing flying over False Creek; he seems to be doing circuit training. He is not so good at flying, but his flight is much better than I because he can do precise landing just onto the 2 inch wide handrail of my balcony. He is not an enthusiastic pilot and often takes a rest on my balcony looking at my filthy room. I don't know exactly what he is thinking about tilting his neck, but I feel a kind of sympathy with him. It's a great challenge for anyone to fly in the sky.
