I saw a seagull today in Chicago with what appeared to be an orange circular tag attached to both the inside and outside of its wing. It seemed to be able to fly just fine, causing me to think that it wasn't something caught or entangled on its wing, but I'm not totally sure. Does anyone know if tracking or tagging seagulls is a somewhat common practice, say by bird societies or wildlife groups? I've tried researching a bit online and came up with nothing. I'm not sure if I'll see this seagull again, but I'm wondering if it's in need of help, in case I do.

Thanks for any input!

It looked to me to be a herring gull, but I'm not certain. I just wasn't sure if that type of obvious tagging was used, or something more subtle, like a leg band. Thanks for the info!
