Abstract

In May of 1983 a small colony of Ring-billed Gulls (Larus delawarensis) attempted to nest in Pennsylvania on the southern shore of Lake Erie at Presque Isle State Park. This is the first recorded breeding attempt in Pennsylvania for this species. At least 20 nests were constructed with at least three receiving eggs before the site was abandoned.
