Hi all,
Maybe that Western Gull was the same one who used to give me the begging look at
Drake's Beach in the Point Reyes National Seashore a few years back. There
always seem to be a few.
Always enjoy the reports from Tweeters. Thanks.

Hi all,

Frank & Mary Montgomery and I found a banded Western Gull at the Westport Marina
today (10/23/11). We were able to read the entire band, and I reported it to the
Bird Banding Lab and all ready have the info on the bird: It was banded near (?)
the Farallon Islands, California (near San Francisco) on June 18, 2004 and was
"too young to fly" at the time, which makes it 7 years old now.

Later we found a Bar-tailed Godwit among 400 or so Marbled Godwits at Tokeland,
and there was a probable American Golden-Plover at Midway. It was distant, but
it looked pretty good for American. If someone else reports a Pacific from there
anytime soon, I will invoke the two-bird theory.
