American Herring Gull (smithsonianus) V08 4CY, August 26 2015, Hampton, NH. Picture: Robbie & Colleen Prieto.

Please visit Robbie's & Colleen's Flick photos for more pictures. See website: The Gulls Of Appledore.

Band data still pending, probably V08 was banded as a chick in July 2012, at Appledore Island. (like green V09, banded as chick on July 18 2012, when too young to fly.)

Bird in complete moult, outer primaries P8-P10 still old. Note the obvious black markings in the old tail feathers and old secondaries in combination with P10 mirror, indicating the age.
