Re: Banded Sandhill Crane

In the past I have reported banded Sandhill Cranes from Staten Island here:

On Sun, 27 Nov 2022 15:51:05 -0800, "rfs_berkeley" <rscalf@...>

Yesterday, November 26, a Sandhill Crane was seen at Staten Island
wearing 5 leg bands.

Left: Silver over Red over Green (all the same size)

Right: Yellow over Red. Yellow band the same size as the 3 on the
left leg, the Red band twice as long with P282 embossed in white.

I am trying to report using the USGS band reporting page and having no
luck; the input form insists that I report a band number for the Silver
band on the left leg and won't take No for an answer.

Does anyone know what project this is or who to contact?
