6F7 sighted in Canada

Guest blogger Sarah Courchesne here again. Here’s another recent report from the field:

Dave Collins was visiting Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area in Ontario when he and his 9 and 11 year olds spotted a banded gull. Dave happened upon this blog and contacted Julie for details on the bird.

Turns out the bird, a Great Black-Backed Gull, was banded as a chick at its nest along the trail to Sandpiper Beach on Appledore Island, Maine.

This is not the first banded bird to turn up in Ontario, though Julie reports that birds sighted that far north and west are usually Great Black-Backed Gulls. Her banded Herring Gulls tend to turn up farther south.

Thanks to Dave and family for the report–keep an eye out for more!
