I know the species, but am curious about the bands as some work has been done to make field sightings easy. So I went to Google and found some websites that all directed me to the same URL. There was a form to fill out and I did so and clicked on "Save". Nothing obvious happened and I did not find a table indicating where these bands were applied. I also gave my e-mail address and never received any acknowledgement. Because this species migrates such long distances I am curious about their history. For example, do East Coast birds sometimes fly north via the West Coast?

Anyone know anything about these coloured bands? (Red Knots from Bottle Beach)


ID, please
