I had no luck with either the Slaty-backed Gull or Mew Gull today in the
Oswego area (best gull for me was a 1st winter Iceland Gull - on the river
near lock 6).
At Oswego Harbor Kyle Brock scoped 1 bird on the break wall to the east,
and a woman who's name I can't recall had spotted another on the east side
of the harbor at the base of a large tower (perhaps a radio tower).
That being said, I also have a request - if anyone is familiar with the
permit requirements for keeping study skins or mounted birds for a school
collection please contact me at the email provided (I know that DEC and
USFWS both require permits, but any insight as to the particulars would be
Best of luck if you go for the gulls - hopefully they will be re-found!
