I ran into Mr. Shelduck today. He seems to be traveling west.
10/3 Milford, Silver Sands St. Pk.
10/10 Bridgeport Seaside Pk.
10/25 Westport Sherwood Is. St. Pk.
10/28 Norwalk, Calf Pasture Beach
???? Stamford Cove Is. Pk.
I also saw an interesting feeding behavior in a Herring Gull
It was an adult bird, and it was standing on the lawn.
It would stamp its feet for 5 to 10 seconds then gobble up 2 to 3
This occurred for ten minutes.
The Ring-billed Gulls just walked about looking.
Later on in another park I started looking for this behavior in
others. Most of the Gulls were just roosting. I did see two other
Herring Gulls feeding the same way.
