Ring-billed Gull

I birded a small pond near Circle Lake in Rice Co. on 21 March 2017. About two dozen Ring-billed Gulls greeted me, The flew low to the water around the lakeshore. They tended to bunch up at the north edge of the lake, where the gulls flew against the 32 degree cold wind, Here they flew very slowly, using their legs as air-breakes, The birds carefully watched the water surface, and occasionally wheeling around, diving, and catching prey, which I assume, on such a cold day, were small fish.
