4K9 observed in Massachusetts

Phil Brown, who has reported several Appledore gulls in the past, had a recent sighting at Sandy Point State Reservation on Plum Island, Ipswich, MA.   On October 10, Phil saw 4K9 loafing at high tide with a mixed flock of gulls.

4K9 was banded in May 2010 and is part of our long-term population studies as well as the Extra Pair Paternity project being conducted by a Cornell undergraduate this year.


Thanks to Phil for the observation and great photo!
