Cracking Mussels

Seagull with mussel, Tijuana Estuary Reserve, San Diego, California. Seagulls will drop clams and mussels repetitively until they crack open and they can get at the animal inside. This one is dropping his mussel on the sand but others will find a stretch of cement or asphalt walkway to crack open their dinner. The unknowing pedestrian will see the litter from hundreds of broken clams/bivalves and wonder where they all came from!
