Martin H. Moynihan - Ring-billed Gulls, Pelican Island-Doglake, Manitoba, Canada, 1954-55
About the Project
Ring-billed gulls—one of the most common species in North America—often nest near the Canadian coasts. But where do these birds travel in colder weather?
Track the migration of the ring-billed gulls of Canada with Martin H. Moynihan’s 1954-55 field notes. Moynihan, a biologist and ornithologist, was founding director of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama.
