Subject: [Maine-birds] Augusta Gulls...
Hi all,

Yesterday, I spent a couple of hours gulling in Augusta.

At the Church Hill Road gull roost (located opposite the Sportsman's
Alliance of Maine office), I observed an astonishing 1600+ HERRING
GULLS as well as 1 immature GLAUCOUS GULL (presumably the same bird
seen/reported in previous weeks by a few observers), and 40 GREAT
BLACK-BACKED GULLS. I also heard a KILLDEER calling from a nearby

I also visited the Hatch Hill Landfill on Hatch Hill Road and observed
hundreds of additional HERRING GULLS, 10 GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULLS, and
1 immature ICELAND GULL. I also saw 2 KILLDEER, 200+ AMERICAN CROWS,
and 5+ BALD EAGLES. The gulls were much more active and difficult to
observe at this location (in part due to the eagles).


P.S. I'm leading a bird walk in Biddeford Pool this Sunday (3/5/17).
