Herring Gull Larus argentatus

Description

There were a lot of gulls in the area, but I was able to successfully identify one as a herring gull due to its light colored feet and red mark on bill as it flew overhead. I am assuming there were other species around, and that I have underestimated the total individuals.

This bird had light brown feathers and a white underbelly. It looked similar to a house sparrow, but the song didn't match to a house sparrow. I was unsure of what species it was, but I attached a clip of the song.

Oakledge Cove, 65 Oakledge Dr Burlington, VT 05401
19℉, winds from the N at 6 mph, sunny and clear skies
Scenic rocky outcroppings on lake shore. Many pine and oak trees.

As we basked in the sun along the lake, five mallards (2 females and 3 males) took off into the sunset. Mallards have high speed wings, with a low aspect ratio. High speed wings mean they flap continuously during flight. This is the most reliable wing type for birds like Mallards, that make long distance migrations. In North America, birds migrate South as far as Mexico and other parts of Central America during the winter. However, it also makes complex maneuvers, like hovering and soaring, difficult or near impossible.
We also saw a small Black-Capped Chickadee, flying between birch trees and chirping away along the lakeshore. Chickadees have a bouncy, aerobatic flight as Chickadee’s typically fly short distancances with rapid wing beats. Their pointed wing shape allows them to navigate both thick wooded areas, and busy neighborhoods, allowing them to make quick dramatic turns. This flight pattern was much more aerodynamic than the mallards, highlighting their ability to quickly hop around, rather than long durable distances like the mallard, as Black-Capped Chickadees typically do not migrate.

The weather was sunny, and around 30ºF. It was around 11am. Large numbers of these birds were seen chasing each other through the branches directly overhead and beside the walking trails. A few were seen by the waterfront, sitting in smaller pine trees beside the path.
