From time to time, our intrepid Seanetters look up from the carcass-littered beaches and observe a living bird, or some other item of interest. Occasionally, Seanetters even go on vacation. In recent days, I have gotten emails from three Seanetters who sent along interesting or unusual sights, and we also received a very bizarre photo on which we’d like your thoughts. Here is our photo gallery of varied curiosities.
Finally, the photo on which we’d like to solicit your thoughts. Bruce Parsons of Nova Scotia, Canada, observed a gull with irregular yellow material on its legs, wings and tail. He sent the pictures to gull researcher Ken Mackenzie in Massachusetts who had some thoughts (which I will not reveal lest they bias your own musings.) Through Ken, the photos reached SEANET, and we here present them to the vast group intellect of Seanetters and ask you to post your thoughts. There is no definitive answer on this, so we welcome any ideas you might have.
