Subject: [Tweeters] Record-setting Ring-billed Gull
Hello Tweetsters -  A Cleveland man was birding on Lake Erie and noticed
in a big flock of Ring-billed Gulls one with a metal leg band. He worked
hard to get a photo of it and sent it to the USGS bird banding lab. He
learned that it is the longest living Ring-billed Gull on record at 28
years 9 months old.
