  • Short Summary

    Various birds in flight in Texas, two ornithologists observe whilst drinking what looks like cider.

  • Description

    Texas, United States of America.

    M/S of two men and a small boat. They are preparing to go on a bird hunting trip. One of them hands the other what looks a cider flagon. L/S of a group of white birds - seagulls? in an area of brushland. They may be called "Skimmers". We see them hovering in the air. Closer shots of the birds in flight. C/U of several birds eggs - they are not in nests, just scattered around in the sand. C/U four baby birds close to the waters edge.

    "Laughing gulls" are seen - a large number of birds fly in the sky - a man waves his arms around in the distance - probably to scare them into flying. C/U of a group of the birds. The gulls "laugh". M/S of the two men with their boat - one of them takes a swig from his cider.
