Earth to Ring-billed Gull

Thanks to Dennis Varza for finding and reporting the first year Ring-billed Gull which is banded on both legs and has a transmitter attached to it’s back.  The bands are pretty legible as can be seen in the photos, with the bottom photo just of the legs/bands.  For anyone that knows how to report the bands, please do so.  These are low-res files.

This bird was photographed on Dec-29-2010 in Fairfield, CT at approximately 11am in the Stop & Shop parking lot.  The bands read: Blue/White ZK1 and Silver Band 95417 (as best as I can tell, though there could be more numbers).
