Ro~What a wonderful photo! I love the blue & brown and the reflection, as well as the plover as subject matter. The banding adds just a touch of color. V/F

Thanks Sue. I believe they are on the endangered list. That is why I got so excited and reported the banded birds I found.

Piping Plover has now been identified: Hi Roena, Thanks so much for the report and the photos! The PIPL in the last photo has a green flag (band with tab sticking out) on the upper left leg. This signifies that it was banded by Virginia Tech. The PIPL that you observed was banded as an adult on Lewis and Clark Lake, near Yankton SD during the summer of 2010 and back to Lewis and Clark Lake to breed in 2011 as well. Thanks again and please let me know if you have any other questions. Kelsi Hunt

Winter Piping Plover Banded 2

Photograph - Photography


One of three Piping Plover banded birds I photographed in 9/2011 on Mustang Island near Corpus Christi, TX. I reported this sighting 11/22/11 to:
" We have a page on the Houston Audubon website about how to handle sightings of banded birds:
I'm copying a section of the page below. In case the links don't work for you, try them directly from the webpage. We appreciate you taking the time to report your sightings!

Researchers investigating bird movements and populations use colored bands and flags to give individual birds an identity and to make them visible to people who watch birds. You can help these researchers by taking good notes on any color banded birds you see. These notes should include the species of bird, color and order of the bands on each leg and where the bird was seen. For example Piping Plover: right leg red over blue, left leg green flag, Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary. Color banded birds should be reported to the US Bird Banding Laboratory by calling 1-800-327-Band (2263) or on their web page. Sometimes it is possible to report the sighting directly to the researcher who banded the bird. If you find a bird with a numbered aluminum band you should also report that to the Bird Banding Lab.
