HI all  All banded birds should be reported to The Bird Banding lab:


The bands also have an 800 number if you get close enough. They will 
usually want the band number or in the case of shorbs they are often 
color banded, specific to each bird and they would like the arrangement 
of the colors. Often shorb banding is limited to a few banders  so they 
will appreciate any reports. If they have color bands they will know who 
& where the bands applied.
