PROJECT UPDATE
- from Susan Elbin, August 31, 2011:

We continue to color band long-legged wading birds as part of a foraging study project with New York City Audubon and New Jersey Audubon.  Since 2008, we have color-banded Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Glossy Ibis, and Double-crested Cormorant. The number in parentheses is the total number banded to date.

  Glossy Ibis (43)

     Left Leg: WHITE leg bands etched with 3-digit BLACK numeric code
     Right Leg: USFWS metal band

Please keep an eye out for banded birds. In addition to the band information, please record the date, location, and number of (other) birds. These data will help us better document the dispersal pattern of these fledglings.
