Started late this morning at the Windsor landfill, but not much  
happening. 350 Gulls just about all HERG, with the continuing probable  
HERG x LBBG hybrid, two interesting dark-eyed HERG and 2 banded HERG:  
(1 Mass. banded with small red band and 1 Newfoundland banded with  
orange marker band).

I made a quick run up to the Housatonic River, below the Shepaug Dam,  
in Southbury  after lunch and found a good number of Gulls on the ice  
and in the field....approx. 1200 which included 1 (continuing) 1st  
cycle Glaucous Gull, 2- 1st cycle Iceland Gulls, and 5 banded  
Ring-billed Gulls (1 small red band from Mass. program, and 4 blue  
banded from Montreal, Quebec program) 2 of those were re-finds, and 2  
were new numbers.
