Ogunquit (Map 1)

February 12, 2010

I never knew seagulls were banded until Feb. 12, 2010 when my wife was feeding them in the parking lot at Ogunquit Beach. I happened to notice this one with bands on both legs.  DH


  1. I received an e-mail from Julie C. Ellis, PhD, Research Assistant Professor, Tufts University…saying it is one of “my” birds which means it was banded at Appledore Island, Maine. It was banded as a chick in July 2005 near the center of the marine laboratory campus. She believes this is the first sighting of this bird off the island.
