Banded Birds

Numerous banded birds have been seen and reported around St. John's. Most of the reports show up on the Discussion Group. Others do not. I don't think there is any local, centralized location that summarizes the sightings and details about the bird. This page is a start to try to maintain an accessible and thorough record of our reports. If anyone would care to submit a photo to be used where I don't have any available or have additional information about any of the banded gulls, please use the contact form on the right column of this site. I will add the information to the chart.

  1. Great collection of banded birds here, Lisa. Thanks for this resource. I imagine like myself, most people are very much interested in the plumage progression in Kumlien's Iceland Gulls. Good stuff!

    By the way, I think we may have met in Colorado at Gullapalooza in February 2013.
