Western Maine Audubon, First Fall Talk: Sea Gulls Disappearing?
Date: September 12, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Location: North Dining Hall, UMF
This event will be lead by Noah Perlut, covering the topic of sea gulls and
their declining nesting population.
The Herring Gull nesting population in the Gulf of Maine has declined ~5% annually since the
1960’s. While gulls traditionally nest on islands, Herring Gulls are nesting on roof-tops in
Portland, ME. Beginning in 2011 Noah Perlut has been exploring this phenomenon. His talk
will describe the choices these birds are making in response to human habitat change.
