A record year for sightings
Our field crew and our network of volunteers have tallied 3,675 sightings of 2,031 marked individuals during 2015. As part of her Master’s project on gull survival, Marie-Claude Murray have observed over 1,500 marked birds, mostly in the Île Deslauriers colony. She was assisted by our senior technician, Francis St-Pierre, who registered 564 sightings. David Adrien from Groveland, MA, and Raymond Belhumeur from Longueuil, QC, were the most active observers reporting 273 and 129 marked birds, respectively. Thanks to all our contributors.
