Re: Banded Sandhill Crane



I’ve photographed and reported this bird for a few years. P282 was banded on 6/28/10, near Alturas, CA.

I used this link.  When you get to the “I’m reporting a: page, select color marker on neck, wing tag or leg band. Then you can enter the leg band numbers and colors of bands.

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?
