Sam and the other seagulls are watching for the fishing boats to come into the harbor. They should have been here by now! They can almost taste the shrimp, scallops, and fish they will steal from the ship. The captains have gotten better at finding ways to keep the seagulls from getting to the fish, but after thousands of years of scavenging and poaching fish off of boats, knowing how to circumvent the humans was in their DNA. They have families to feed, too. Sam just wishes that there were fewer seagulls to compete for the small numbers of delightful morsels.
