Found these old reject slides from 1996 trip to Vancouver and Alaska. I believe they are taken in Vancouver on 31 July or 1st August, but it is possibly later on the cruise in Alaska. Not necessarily the same bird either. Any clues gratefully received P1100019.JPG P1100023.JPG

Like the way the perspective in the second makes it seem as if someone's taken a normal-sized gull and stuck miniature legs on it!

Thank you all. That's what I hoped. The distortion and blurriness is because I don't have slide to digital converter so I took pictures of the slides through a handheld slide viewer!! I am discovering so many slides I didn't I had in lockdown that maybe I should invest in one!

Either way it's a classic of its kind. You should make it more widely available (Opus?, Wikipedia?, Macaulay?)
