Thanks so much for your comments Lenore. The whole banded bird thing was very exciting to me.

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.

Love this capture with the reflection, Roena! I've never seen this bird before.

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

ANOTHER REPLY FROM ME SENDING MY BANDED BIRD IMAGES TO RESEARCHERS.........THEY ARE LOOKING FOR RED KNOTS IN TEXAS.......CHECK YOUR PHOTOS. "There is a strong research effort underway to understand the patterns of the Texas population of wintering red knot. They are marked with coded flags."

Ro, What a beautiful capture on the Plover, greatly showing the bands. You have here a very interesting article and contacts for th Banding of Birds, I found it quite interesting.

Thanks Cornelis for leaving me a comment. I appreciate your encouragement.

What a gorgeous image...and such a perfect reflection. Wonderful work, Roena!

Thank you so much Fraida and Edward. This was the best of the 3 images I captured of the banded birds.

Always like to get the reflections in the photo. Good shot.

Lovely shot Roena!!!
