Have you seen a colour-banded gull?
April 27, 2022
Noticed the gulls in your area sporting some new accessories lately? Environment and Climate Change Canada is conducting a 5-year project to help researchers understand how variations in diet and habitat influence the health of gulls wintering in the Salish Sea.
Researchers banded 183 adult and juvenile Glaucous-winged Gulls with colour leg bands to collect additional information on movements, habitat use, survival, and site fidelity.
Recording sightings of these banded gulls helps researchers better understand their movements and habitat use patterns for conservation planning. You can support this work by reporting sightings of colour banded gulls using this short form.
