Seagull sitting on a skyscraper balcony in Vancouver

The photo is showing a seagull on the balcony of my hotel room on the 26th floor in Vancouver, Canada. The bird was not shy at all. Even when I took the picture it kept sitting there, enjoying the sun, observing me closely. It even kept coming back and forth several times a day. Obviously, this little bird called the balcony home or took the words on the building on the right side - “now renting”- literally.
