As Tundra Swans move in to the region, be aware that
birds have been collared in Alaska (2006 and 2007) and
my colleagues are hoping folks down here will keep an
eye out and report sightings. Details are included
below.

Good birding,
Bruce

TUNDRA SWANS WITH BLUE NECK BANDS FROM ALASKA

TUNDRA SWANS WERE MARKED IN WESTERN AND NORTHERN
ALASKA IN THE SUMMER OF 2006 WITH CODED NECK BANDS AS
PART OF AN EFFORT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TIMING OF
MIGRATION AND MOVEMENTS RELATIVE TO BREEDING AREA.
NECK BANDS HAVE A FOUR-DIGIT CODE THAT BEGINS WITH A
LETTER, AND ARE READ FROM BOTTOM TO TOP. BANDS ARE
BLUE WITH WHITE DIGITS, EXCEPT CODES T3##, WHICH ARE
WHITE WITH BLACK DIGITS.
