Correction to last post: HERG, rather than GBBG, to blame for egg thievery!

Our intrepid team of observers (Tracy Holmes and Bill Clark) discovered that the GBBG blamed for stealing eggs from neighboring nests, was actually a Herring Gull.

Here’s the scoop from Tracy Holmes:

RABA (AOU code for “Rat Bastard”) is a Herring Gull!  Attorneys from the Great Black-backed Gull Union contacted the island last week to inform them a  suit for defamation of character and slander had been filed in Superior Court in Augusta, Maine. A mediator has been retained and hopes for an out of court settlement remain strong.

Below, a photo of the true culprit and its larcenous repast:

Thanks for the clarification, Tracy!
