Photo by Suzanne Sullivan. The photo was taken at Silver Lake in Wilmington, MA on March 16, 2018.
Z00 was banded at the North Head of Appledore Island, Maine while a nestling ready-to-fledge on July 16, 2013. Justin Stilwell was the bander with support from the entire banding team. Watching the teamwork of the ‘chick banding team’ is amazing; what a hard working group. Justin is now “Dr. Justin Stilwell”, Veterinarian.
Suzanne’s report with the photo is the first ‘Off-Island’ report for Z00.
