Yellow-legged Gull michahellis 1cy, May 18 2011, Tel Aviv - University Zool. Garden, Israel. Pictures: Amir Ben Dov.

Ringing activity.

below: Ronny.

below: Yoav Perlmann, from his blog: "Israel has a small breeding population of Yellow-legged Gulls, something around 20-30 pairs. In recent years they began colonizing the Tel Aviv Metropolis, and like in many other places around the Mediterranean are becoming an urban species. Amir Ben Dov has been studying the colony in the Zoological Gardens of the Tel Aviv University for several years. Last year we ringed the chicks for the first time, and the first results about their dispersal are very interesting. Yesterday we returned to ring all the large chicks. We had 10 chicks, but there are still a few chicks too small and some eggs as well. This is me trying to fish one chick out of the bush.

below: the ringing team - Yoav & Ronny processing the birds. Ten birds ringed. Still some eggs in the nests this date.
