Hi Jamie,
Happy Holidays.
It sounds like your gull sighting relates to a banding project other than the 
one being conducted in MASS.
Here's the link to reporting birds that are banded or otherwise marked with 
tags:

Subject: [CT Birds] Wing tagged Ring-billed Gull

While searching areas around the northern Hartford Meadows this morning in a 
vain attempt to find Paul C.'s Rough-legged Hawk, I spotted a Ring-billed Gull 
with a bright yellow wing tag number 269 on it.  I did some research this 
evening on the reservoir tagging program that they did in MA a couple winters 
ago but the website suggests that they used alphanumeric numbers beginning with 
the letter "A" for ringers on their study.  Does anybody know of a study that 
might have resulted in the tagging of the bird I saw and how I can report it?  
The bird was tailgating with a bunch of its untagged buddies in the parking lot 
of the Meadows Music Theater, or whatever they heck they call it this week.
