Subject: [birders] An Arctic Requiem: Ivory Gull
Hatched in June or July 2016somewhere north of 73 degrees,   visited Flint, Michigan,where it took its last breath,on 13 March 2017,being an untimely,if not,a problematic death. Poor Ivory Gull,  no more cold coastal cliffs,no more fierce sea spray,no more sea ice,no more leftover seal meat,no more midnight daylight,no more almost-zenith North Star.
