Seagulls and Cormacks are one of the common ocean birds. During the day they fly together in flocks swooping down in the sea to catch fish with their sharp beaks. Night fall they sleep together in flocks to keep watch for predators. They remind me of our tirbe, we flock toghether as family, help and look after one another. It has always been that way for my people.
