Ring-billed Gull rests on piling at Ormond Beach,Fl. Large size(length 16 inches) withblack ring around yellow bill,greenish- yellow legs. Feeds on insects,mice, eggs of other birds.
Micrograph of sand from Ormond Beach,Fl.........took this sample of sand at water edge ,low tide, to compare to the sand on the Gulf of Mexico side. This is more compact ,that can be used for auto driving,thus was used for early auto racing. Seems to more crystalline. Approx. 150x magnification.
