An American straggler in Venice


From 13 February to 19 March 2004 an adult winter moulting to adult summer Ring-billed Gull, second for Italy if accepted, was observed and photographed by Stefano Castelli (the founder) and other italian birders not far from Saint Mark's Square, the very heart of Venice, the Italian town beloved by Americans (web-footed or not !). Ring-billed Gull is very rare as vagrant in the Mediterranean.
