These gulls aren't. queer;
they re just homosexuals

BOWL TOUR

SANTA BARBARA ISLAND, Calif.
(AP)-Scientists visited this island to
learn why some gulls make better
parents than others. They stayed to
find out why some gulls don't become
parents at all - they're homosexual.
"We were absolutely incredulous,"
said Dr. George Hunt, a member of a
University of California at Irvine
research team that has studied 1,200
pairs of Western gulls since 1974.
"THIS SORT of thing has not been
found before (in wild birds) and was
clearly not what we anticipated,"
Hunt said.
"This is the first case (among wild
birds) of homosexual pairs in which
everything except copulation is done
as if they were normal pairs," said
Dr. Donald Farner, a professor of
zoophysiology at the University of
Washington. Scientists had previous-
ly discovered evidence of homosex-
uality among other animals, includ-
ing dogs.
Farner, whose team has taken
blood samples from several hundred
birds to see if hormones are respon-
sible for the homosexuality, said the

gulls "incubate eggs, defend terri-
tory, and one of the females behaves
as if she were the male in courtship
behavior."
FARNER SAID the homosexuality
in every case involves lesbian rather
than male homosexual behavior.
Females outnumber males on the
island.
Homosexuality was recently dis-
cpvered among male ducks at the
Stanley Park Zoo in Vancouver,
British Columbia, where there is a
shortage of female ducks, according
to zoo curator Stanley LeSage.
On one-square mile Santa Barbara
Island, teams from U-Cal.-Irvine and
the University of Washington are
studying the cause of homosexuality
under a two-year National Science
Foundation grant.
A foundation spokesman said that
the study could provide useful in-
sights into problems of the environ-
ment. The birds' home island, 43
miles off the coast of Los Angeles, is
part of Channel Islands National
Monument and is inhabited only by a
park ranger and occasional over-

night campers.
THE HOMOSEXUALITY was dis-
covered by accident after the Irvine
team arrived in 1974 to conduct its
research into parenting. The re-
searchers found that eight per cent to
14 per cent of the nests contained four
or more eggs instead of the usual
maximum of three eggs. The oddity
caused researchers to temporarily
abandon their original mission.
They discovered that some nests
were occupied by two females, who
were each laying their normal quota
of two or three eggs. These eggs,
however, were infertile.
The researchers found that some of
the all-female couples formed stable
unions which lasted through consecu-
tive breeding seasons.
HUNT, WHO is on sabbatical while
working with the Washington team,
said in a telephone interview from
Seattle yesterday that it's too early
to speculate about environmental
possibilities.
"So far we have only a phenomen-
on at hand," he said. "We don't
really know why this is happening."

considering it. I haven't ruled out any
options." He added that he probably
will decide today.
Lauer confirmed he will be running
for re-election to the office. Should Ar-
nson run, Lauer said, "I've got the ad-
vantage of incumbency. I think I would
be the front-runner."

he said.
