From the Wisconsin listerve...............Probably only applies to the MS. 
River birders. ---------------LOOKING FOR COLOR-BANDED GULLS

(from the Ornithological Newsletter)

"Please keep your "eyes peeled" for color-banded Thayer's and Glaucous
Gulls. Adults and fledglings of both species have been banded over the past
4 nesting seasons (2003-2006) in the Canadian high Arctic and we'd love to
know where these birds are going in the fall, winter and spring. Each THGU
has been banded with a bright yellow leg band that has been engraved with a
black alphanumeric code (e.g., B1). Similarly, each GLGU has been banded
with a red or white leg band that has been engraved with a white or dark
blue alphanumeric code, respectively. Each adult bird has additional solid
color bands on one or both legs. If you observe banded adult or juvenile
Thayer's or Glaucous Gulls, please record the location, date and the
alphanumeric code. Also, any information regarding behavior or diet would
be greatly appreciated. If you see any of these birds, please report the
sighting(s) to CINDY ANDERSON, Wildlife Biology Program, University of
Montana, Missoula, MT 59812 (EM: cindy.anderson AT mso.umt.edu). Your help 
is
kindly appreciated!"
