If you find a dead bird with a metal band, colored bands, or both, please report your finding to the Bird Banding Lab of North America. You will be asked to report the band number and where and when you found the bird. You can report bird bands one of two ways: (1) Click here to report a band online or (2) Call 1-800-327-BAND (2263) from anywhere in Canada, the United States, and most parts of the Caribbean.
KBO’s bird banding program provides valuable information about bird population demographics and migration in the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion. Several other federal agencies and and science organizations also band birds to help answer questions about species longevity, migration, and population status. Thank you for your contribution to avian science!
