BREAKING: THE NILES POND YOUNG SWAN RESCUED BY LYN FONZO AND DAN HARRIS

Eastern Point residents Lyn Fonzo and Dan Harris discovered the Young Swan frozen in the ice at Niles Pond early this morning. Dan reached into the water and scooped her up. She seemed relatively tame and did not try to bite Dan as we had imagined would happen. Dan and Lyn carried her to Lyn’s home, where she is currently living in one of Lyn’s chicken coops. Plans are underway to modify the chicken house to make it a bit more swan friendly. Joel Munroe, one of several of Mr. Swan’s caregivers, is also a carpenter and she is planning to help Lyn.

Tremendous shout outs to Lyn Fonzo, Dan Harris, Skip and Joel Munroe, and to Michelle Smith. West Gloucester resident Michelle formerly raised swans and emus on the family farm and she is providing excellent advice on how to care for swans in our New England climate.

Updated: The Latest Banded Seagull From The Gulls of Appeldore project Photographed At Captain Joe and Sons Band 3YN Photographed 2:20 12/15/17

Bill Clark, Volunteer, Gulls of Appledore writes back after I reported the sighting: 

Joey,

Thanks for the report and photo link for GBBG 3Y9.

3Y9 is a young adult Great Black-backed Gull banded July 15, 2014.  Great Black-backed Gulls nest for the first time in their fourth of fifth year so 3Y9 may join the nesting colony on Appledore Island this summer.

We have no reports for 3Y9 since the gull was banded by Justin Stilwell, then a student, now Dr. Stilwell a veterinarian. At the time of banding 3Y9 was a chick at nest 14G518 on Appledore Island just getting ready to fly.

You have scored a ‘FIRST’ with this report.  Your report is important since it indicates that 3Y9 has survived the tough juvenile years.

Some gulls disperse as far as Texas, Florida, Nova Scotia, or Quebec while others stay closer to New England.  Reports such as your are providing information about their travels and gathering places; information of interest to health workers, veterinarians, wildlife managers, airports, and others.

The long-term project on Appledore continues to serve several college and university research studies.  Started in 2004 it continues as a field training program for students as well as providing ‘known age’ gulls and research samples such as DNA  and feathers for cooperating researches.

Again, thanks for the report and photo link.
