 62H was banded while a chick at a nest on Appledore Island July 17, 2015 and DNA results indicate 62H is a male.  Donna first reported 62H Sept 21, 2015, at about three months of age at Birdseye Boat Ramp in Stratford.  She has a series of photographs showing 62H since that time showing 62H and the plumage changes.
