Friend or Foe?

When I captured this photo of two seagulls on the pier in Oceanside, CA my focus was on the view inside the lens. At the time I didn’t put much thought into what the birds were doing or how they were interacting. Now, after looking at their eyes and analyzing their stance and posture, I wonder if these birds were greeting each or their or telling each other to “go away”. Are they friends or foes, rivals for obtaining a specific goal, or just two birds sharing the rocky coast of the beautiful ocean below?  Would love to hear everyone’s thoughts!
