Gull nests research in Maine, USA


This December 2015 video from the USA says about itself:

The Shoals Marine Laboratory is a summer field station for marine science research and education. Jointly operated by Cornell University and the University of New Hampshire, Shoals provides hands-on learning opportunities and laboratory facilities on Appledore Island, Isles of Shoals in the Gulf of Maine.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA, December 2019:

From 2010 until 2016, Cornell University students diligently collected nesting data on two species of gulls at the Shoals Marine Lab on Appledore Island off the coast of Maine. Recently this large data set has come home to roost in our NestWatch database via a generous bulk-upload contribution from Dr. David Bonter including 1,564 nest records consisting of 49,284 detailed nest checks! Read our latest blog post for more on the team’s efforts.

We accept large data sets year-round of any species, including those not in nest boxes. Contact us if you have nesting data that you’d like to permanently archive with NestWatch.

The two species studied are Great Black-backed Gulls and Herring Gulls.
