This presumed definitive-alternate Herring Gull Larus a. smithsonianus was photographed at La Marque, Texas on April 3, 2000. As you can see it is color-banded: Right Leg: just above the foot was a metal band (data not discerned); still on the tarsus but just below the tarsus/tibia joint was an unmarked orangy-yellow band. Left leg: two bands on the tarsus resting above the foot; the lower band was unmarked green; the upper band was red with "R4" written sideways in white letters (repeated about 3 or 4 times); does anyone know the banding location/date for this bird?:
