The island, with a few dead trees, some grass and a rocky shoreline, is a haven for colonial waterbirds, with nests of Caspian terns, herring gulls and tens of thousands of ring-billed gulls &ndash; the standard seagull seen throughout the north country.</p><p style="margin-bottom: 0in"> Wed, 06 Jun 2012 14:34:00 +0000 Joanna Richards 20383 at http://wrvo.org DEC surveys waterbird populations on Little Galloo Island
