Where’s Waldo?

28 01 2013

It’s time for a little game.  Anyone who was a kid in the 1980’s would remember the “Where’s Waldo” books that tormented and delighted children (and maybe some adults) for hours on end.  It involved tiny cartoons of hundreds of cats, rats, people, wizards and dragons crammed onto two-page spreads.  Each page depicting a theme from pirates to sky scrapers or sea monsters to teddy bear picnics.  Your quest was to find Waldo, in a red and white striped shirt, hidden among the crowds.

Back in October I received a gull sighting report (and picture) that reminded me of a Where’s Waldo scene.  A Great Black-backed Gull wearing turquoise wing-tag AEE was spotted at a landfill site.  Thanks to the picture from Rodney Gallant you can have a crack at picking out the tagged gull among the gulls and garbage of the East Prince Waste Management Facility in Wellington Centre, PEI.  The wing-tags almost act as camouflage!  So far I’ve found only one tagged gull in the photo but be sure to let me know if you find any more.
