Abstract

The notes document M. Moynihan's observations of Laridae (Gulls), 1953 at the "Hearth". Most notes are typed. Entries are headed by week with date and describe behavior, appearance, movement within environment (i.e. flight), and time of day. Behaviors observed are highlighted in the text, usually denoting the behavior by indicating if it is a description (aerial display) or by intent (i.e. aggression, courtship). Entries are indexed. Includes list of observed behaviors relating to described intent and related dates. Contains counts of success and failure of attempted copulation.
