Check out the USGS/Patuxent Wildlife Research Center site's page on Pan American Shorebird Program (PASP) http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/homepage/paspflag.cfm If I am reading their info correctly, a bird with one leg tagged with a light (pale) green flag would have been caught and tagged in Suriname.

Subject: [CT Birds] Long Beach West, Stratford, flagged sanderling
No rarities this morning, but there was a Sanderling which had a lime
(pale) green flag on its' upper left leg with code J4N. The lower right leg had a standard metal band. I submitted the information to "bandedbirds.org,"but it was a somewhat complicated process and I am not sure my information was sent properly. I hope that I get some kind of information in return as to where and when the bird was originally flagged and any other subsequent sightings.
There were about 150 Sanderling and 200 Dunlin present. I could not relocate the gull which has been causing all the discussion, nor was a Piping Plover there this morning. Many gulls feeding in a line far offshore.
