Band Codes Are Included For All Birds
The four-letter band codes are included for all birds in the Gold edition version 5.5 and now in Version 4.5 as well. You may select birds to view using these band codes. You may also take quizzes using these band codes.
Bird banding is a universal and indispensable technique for studying the movement, survival and behavior of birds. The North American Bird Banding Program is jointly administered by the United States Department of the Interior and the Canadian Wildlife Service.
Did you know that less than 1% of the songbirds that are banded are ever heard from again? However, for waterfowl, the rate is over 20%.
