However, after we had returned Kamikaze Hr. (A) carefully back to its nest, Brendan and I practiced bleeding two Great Black-backed chicks. They were a little bigger but no less adorable and just... awesome. To think that something that small grows into a full-fledged (haha) Great Black-backed Gull, the biggest gull in the world! It is pretty mind boggling to think of just how much learning and parental care and survival goes into a life like that.
