On Sunday I was walking across the State Street bridge and noticed a gull on top of a light pole. This gull looked a bit odd. It had orange flaps sticking out from either side of its back. I did a search online and found this and this. I'm curious to find out if this research project is successful. It sure would be nice to have fewer beach closings.
If you see a banded or tagged bird, you can assist with research by observing details (type of bird, color of band or tag, any visible number on tag, date and location) and reporting them here.
