1) If you have noticed ANY large flocks (500 or more) gulls surface-feeding in LIS Long Island Sound during the month of March (or February), please let me know (robben99 @ gmail.com). It appears FEW gull congregations have exceeded one thousand or more during this month of March, unlike some previous years. Is this correct?
2) Most marine experts are leaning toward Nereid marine worms as the probable organism we found in our photos and this video on March 9th, in the flock of 3,000 gulls a mile off Stratford CT (the action picks up about two minutes into this clip): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xovi2-FO5eY
