    Bird band update: received Certificate of appreciation for reporting the band...

    Don't know if anyone is interested in this topic, but if anyone is:


    This is the 2nd certificate issued to me for reporting a recovered bird band.

    The bird was just a baby when it was banded.

    Here's a pic with information re : species, location, etc.

    That is very intersting. I assume you found them detecting? The reason I say that is because gulls are not typically hunted. I have called in a few for duck hunting and I know a few other guys who have found geese with tags. Cool find.

    Yes, I found both bands at beaches out at low tide.

    Thank you for calling in the band #'s, and I am glad they sent you acknowledgement.

    My best friends' dad raises racing pigeons. Sometimes, one or more do not return home, and he waits and waits, for a call from the club. Usually, the call never comes. By at least reporting these band #'s, it is a way that the owner of the bird, can "let the bird go", so to speak, and not just keep wondering. Thank you, again.

    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    pat-tekker-cat,

    Thank you for the photos and for your insight regarding bird bands.

    Those racing pigeons are beautiful birds; my brother-in-law raised "homer pigeons" long ago, and would put bands on them.

    That's a very interesting aspect of this hobby.

    I suspect the gull was probably a rescue that was released. The marine rescue facility here knows me on a first name basis. I've cut my detecting short a number of times to bring in pelicans twice with broken wings, a baby tern with an injured wing, and baby night herons twice (fell out of their nests) ... in the last year.
