Information taken directly from Jean Iron Blog regarding banded gull.
Banded adult Great Black-backed Gull (OR5) on Lake Simcoe at Minet's Point in Barrie on 15 November 2015. It was banded on May 20, 2011 at Appledore Island, Isle of Shoals, Maine. 0R5 was a nesting adult at the time of banding (four+ years of age) and thus is part of the Gulls of Appledore long-term research project started in 2005."
