Klamath Bird Observatory achieves bird conservation in the Pacific Northwest and throughout the ranges of our migratory birds. Emphasizing high-caliber science and the role of birds as indicators, we inform and improve natural resource management. Recognizing that conservation occurs across many fronts, we also nurture an environmental ethic through community outreach and education. We owe our success to committed donors, volunteers, staff, and partners who demonstrate that each of us can contribute to a legacy of abundant bird populations and healthy land, air, and water.

Finding a Band

If you find a dead bird with a metal band, color-bands, or any other marker or device attached, please report your finding at the Bird Banding Laboratory website.

You will be asked to report the band number and where and when you found the bird. The information will shared with the original bander and you will be presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for your contribution to avian science that includes the bird's original banding location, date, and it's age at that time.

KBO's banding program provides valuable information about bird population demographics and migration in the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion. Many other government agencies, academic institutions, and science-based organizations also band birds to help answer questions about longevity, migration, and population status.
