Subject: [nysbirds-l] Banded herring gull - blue point NY
A photo of a banded ring-billed gull taken atop someone’s car at the Town’s dock in Blue Point (just west of Corey Beach) was recently posted on a Facebook group.

After entering the data on the USGS site, i received notification (remarkably in just 12 hours) that the bird was banded in Varennes Quebec (just outside Montreal) in 2014 and that the bird was hatched in 2011 or earlier.
