Found another ring-billed gull with orange wing tags


On |October 8th. I had found a ring-billed gull with orange flour scent tags on its wings. You can see the post Iwroteabout it at: http://naturetales.blogspot.com/2009/10/ring-billed-gull-with-tags.html. Yesterday(Oct .26th.) was the first I had been back to the Carleton Park location and hoped I might see another tagged gull and I did! # 455. Ishall have to make Carleton Park a regular stop for the next while.Above is a view of Fredericton from Carleton |Park. The park is on the north side of the Saint john River.A gull's view of Fredericton.

I saw a gull ysterday in a tributary of the Chesapeake bay with orange wing tags. I'm on the eastern shore of Maryland.
